(Post Media, which owns most “conservative” media outlets in Canada)
(Atlas Network, which funds 12 (was 13) groups in Canada, 140 in U.S.)

3. Context For This Piece
It doesn’t really need much of an explanation. People should know who is really behind their media and how independent these organizations really are. Yes, it’s a bit hypocritical to run this site anonymously.
Taking Canada as an example: a lot of the “conservative” or right-leaning outfits are owned and controlled by Post Media. Yes, it is a virtual monopoly.
Also worth noting: many of the “right-leaning” think tanks are controlled by one organization, Atlas Network. The same people just resurface under different names. These groups help influence globalist policies such as mass migration and globalized trade.
And in going through the names, one ethnic group seemed to appear an awful lot, much more than its percentage of the population would suggest.
4. Post Media Owns A Lot
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the more mainstream media outlets in Canada. Most of these names should be familiar to people.
- Calgary Herald
- Calgary Sun
- Edmonton Journal
- Growth Op
- London Free Press
- Montreal Gazette
- National Post
- Ottawa Citizen
- Regina-Leader Post
- Saskatoon StarPhoenix
- The Province
- Toronto Sun
- Vancouver Sun
- Windsor Star
- Winnipeg Sun
Of course, this doesn’t cover countless smaller publications that this media giant owns. Scary, just how many “voices” are controlled by one source. Now, let’s show the Postmedia “communities”. A much longer list, and many have their websites included.

Again, all of this is just what Post Media lists as owning. Not only the major news outlets, but many smaller “community” organizations as well. All of it is owned by one conglomerate. Speaks volumes for the independence and choice that exists in Canada.

6. Atlas Network’s Canadian Partners
- Alberta Institute
- Canadian Constitution Foundation
- Canadian Taxpayers Federation
- Canadians For Democracy And Transparency
- Fraser Institute
- Frontier Center For Public Policy
- Institute For Liberal Studies
- Justice Center For Constitutional Freedoms
- MacDonald-Laurier Institute For Public Policy
- Manning Center
- Montreal Economic Institute
- World Taxpayers Federation
Why address Atlas Network? Because many of its operatives pretend to be objective and non-partisan in what they write and speak about.
While Atlas certainly does not have a monopoly on the paid shills in the media, there seem to be an awful lot of them who are connected. So let’s take a look into it. Note: Not all will be conservative, but a lot of them are. Just shows they’re all globalists.
7. Tom Flanagan: Author, Campaign Manager
When not involved in politics, Flanagan writes articles and books. Very prolific writer.
8. Danielle Smith: NewsTalk 770 Host
Smith interned for the Fraser Institute in 1996/1997. She also hosted Global Sunday and wrote for the Calgary Herald. After a stint in Alberta politics, she hosts an afternoon radio show.
9. Ezra Levant: Current “Rebel Commander”
That’s right. Ezra Levant cut his teethfor the Koch Foundation and the Fraser Institute. He then got involved in conservative politics and media outlets. One such venture was founding the Western Standard.
10. Derek Fildebrant: Western Standard Editor
Fildebrandt used to be head of the Alberta Branch of the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation. However, people weren’t happy when he used his training to privately sublet a publicly funded apartment. Now out of politics, he revived Ezra Levant’s old publication, the Western Standard.
Interesting situation: Both Levant and Fildebrandt have ties to Atlas Network and Koch. Levant worked at Fraser Institute, Fildebrandt at the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation. One big happy family.
11. Candice Malcolm: Koch, Fraser Institute
Candice worked for Koch and the Fraser Institute, before getting into journalism. She now runs True North Canada, which “identifies” as a non-profit group. Wonder who funds that.
12. Manny Montenegrino: Think Sharp
Manny works as a lobbyist, but comes on shows such as Rebel Media and promotes himself as a commentator. He is also an advisor for the Conservative Party of Canada.
13. Spencer Fernando: Nat’l Citizens Coalition
Fernando joined the National Citizen’s Coalition, which is the organization Stephen Harper used to run. While at one time an independent writer and journalist, he is reduced to a mouthpiece and shill.
14: Chantel Hebert: Trudeau Foundation
Quebec media figure Chantel Hebert is also a member of the Trudeau Foundation.
15. Alexandre Trudeau: Trudeau Foundation
If making Islamic propaganda films counts as “independent journalism“, then I guess this guy counts. Late brother of current Prime Minister, and son of former Prime Minister.
16. Canadian Media Is Controlled
Obviously, the list of media personalities with globalist ties is not exhaustive. There are more, but this article is getting long already. A few points to take away:
(A) Canada’s media is essentially controlled by 1 organization — Post Media. It owns not only the major outlet, but many smaller ones as well. It’s basically a monopoly.
(B) Even within so-called “conservative” and alt/indy media, there are many with globalist ties (such as with Koch, Atlas Network, or the Trudeau Foundation). As such, nothing they say can be taken at face value without doing research on the reporter.
(C) Looking at the names, a certain ethnic group appears a lot in the media, far more than it should. And no, it’s not white people. Whatever happened to promoting diversity?
