Even More Subsidies & “Pandemic Bucks”, For Propping Up Canadian Media

On April 1, 2020, the Canada Media Fund Corporation received a $222,896,077 grant from the Canadian Government. Of this, $88,750,000 was specified as Covid relief. This is just one of the many grants Canadian media companies have been getting in recent years.

1. The Media Is Not Loyal To The Public

Truth is essential in society, but the situation in Canada is worse than people imagine. In Canada (and elsewhere), the mainstream media, periodicals, and fact-checkers are subsidized, though they deny it. Post Media controls most outlets in Canada, and many “independents” have ties to Koch/Atlas. Real investigative journalism is needed, and some pointers are provided.

3. Canada Financing Covid Propaganda Abroad

NAME PLACE YEAR AMOUNT
***Community Media Network Jordan 2020 $30,169
***La Voz Publica para la Verificacion del Discurso Publico (Chequeado) Argentina 2020 $28,750
***Red para la Diversidad Sexual (REPADIS) Paraguay 2020 $15,246
***Salam Afghanistan Media Organization Afghanistan 2020 $62,000

Serious question: why are we funding these programs abroad? It’s bad enough the brainwashing that goes on domestically, but this maybe even worse.

4. Canadian Media Long Term Dependents

Various media in Canada, such as television, radio, newspapers have long been dependent on the Government, (or rather, taxpayers), to remain viable. The consequence is that when Ottawa or the Provinces have agendas to implement, few will be in any position to investigate them too hard. The result is almost universal media approval.
