Canada Book Fund: Subsidizing The Publishing Industry

It’s not just the news media that owes its livelihood to taxpayer subsidies. The publishing industry also seems to be similarly dependent. Here are some of the recent grants it’s received.

Now, this isn’t to completely knock financing of the publishing industry. Literacy itself is something that’s very important to society. That being said, it’s fair to assume there won’t be any publications that go against government narratives. They know who butters their bread.

Worth mentioning: this is just some of the grants. This list is hardly exhaustive, and shouldn’t be seen as such.

Sure, one could argue that this isn’t political at all. However, with regards to books, magazines, or other publications, how likely will they be to promote content which questions their donors? How many would take a long hard look at the powers that be?

Additionally, there are at least some that have obtained charity status. As such, they would be entitled to a more favourable tax rate, according to the Canada Revenue Agency.

This continues the list of institutions that are getting funded to shill the “pandemic” narrative. These include: restaurants and hotels, political parties, law firms, more law firms, churches, trucking associations, chambers of commerce, and financial institutions, to name a few.
