The Con Mob and the Criminal Assault on the CBC

He's slashing the CBC, like only a Con, or a Jack the Ripper could. 

He's draining its life blood, chopping it into pieces, and cooking it in his hellish kitchen.

The evidence couldn't be clearer. 

But that's not what the PMO wants you to believe.

And this is the Con mob...

Where first they muzzle their enemies, then they whack 'em, then they use the issue to raise money from their ghastly followers, then they do a victory dance.

And then they deny it. 

"We are not making cuts to the CBC… They have stable funding. I guess their crisis is their viewing is going down significantly. Hence, as a consequence, advertising revenue is going down, so that may be what you're referring to but from a government perspective, we are giving them as much taxpayer money as they ever have received."

Even though that's just another Big Lie. Even though their fingerprints are all over the bleeding body.

In 2012-13, the Conservatives cut CBC funding by $27.8 million and another $41.8 million in 2013-14. During this fiscal year, ending in March 2015, another $45.4 million is being cut. To absorb the cuts, CBC announced the elimination of 657 staff positions in April. Another 1,000 to 1,500 positions are slotted to be eliminated by 2020 as part of a plan to reduce significantly in-house production.

And even though some who should know are warning the CBC may never recover.

Nine former members of CBC/Radio-Canada’s board of directors have sent an urgent letter to the current board, saying the public broadcaster’s mandate is “in peril” if recent federal funding cuts are not reversed.

The ex-board members, who include a former chairwoman as well as the CBC’s previous president, said the broadcaster, which is mandated by the 1991 Broadcasting Act, would likely die without more support.

And everybody knows that Stephen Harper has always wanted to kill it ...

And feed it to his rabid base.

And the good news? If they're trying to cover-up what they've done to the CBC it must be because they think it could cost them votes. And we'll make sure it will.

By using its sad state to help portray him as a sellout who can't be trusted.

A leader more American or Albertan than Canadian, who hates this country with a passion.

For as you know, he may have his vision of the CBC.

But I have my vision of him and his Cons...

As well as this message for all those who love this country.

Don't let that monstrous Con hog get away it. Send him to the pig pen or the Big House.

Or just give the dictator a fake mustache.... 

Because a tiny little mustache hanging from his flared nostrils would suit him so well.

But whatever you do, or however you do it.

Save the CBC.

Don't let him destroy our Canada...

    But the CBC is a Liberal goebbellian propaganda organ who ignore the NDP and shrewdly slag the Conservatives, and before that the Reform and Alliance. The CBC is destroying itself with it's pro-palestinian broadcasting too. Harper will make them pay for their traitorous existence.

      Please rethink your post ? " " The combined payroll of ( Steve's PMO ) federal spin doctors rivals the $329-million payroll of the House of Commons,

      " The numbers, released in response to an access to information request, reveal that 3,325 spin doctors toil for the Harper government at an estimated cost this year of $263 million. "... " the ranks of communications staff have grown by 163 since the Conservatives took office, while costs have risen by $48 million." ... " does not include the RCMP, the military, the Canada Revenue Agency, independent tribunals such as the Canadian Human Rights Commission or Crown corporations. This is just the core public service we’re talking about. Who knows what it costs Canada Post for media spinners to explain that community mailboxes are better for us than door-to-door delivery? "

      " The combined payroll of federal spin doctors rivals the $329-million payroll of the House of Commons, the beating heart of our democracy, the institution we rely upon to keep hundreds of thousands of federal officials accountable. "

      I prefer "spin doctors" to Liberal goebbellian propaganda gnomes within the CBC. Besides, the CBC costs the beleaguered Canadian taxpayer a Billion$$$ year after year after year.... and they still can't get over 5% market share. The CBC is one gigantic FLOP..!!!!

      Bullshit ...

  2. Anonymous8:05 AM

    The CBC is a total failure in it's mandate to unite all Canadians. Radio-Canada is filled with sovereignists while CBC is filled with anti-Israel, pro-palestinian operatives. Even so, the CBC is an economic flop that costs the beleaguered Canadian taxpayer some Billion$$$ annually. Let's look at the CBC and it's operations:

    CBC annual taxpayer subsidy -- $1 Billion
    CBC number of jobs -- ~7500
    CBC averaged annual subsidy per job -- ~$133,000 !!!!!

    CBC market share -- ~5%
    CBC user average subsidy cost -- ~$1,500 !!!!!

    Sure, CBC supporters trot out that $29 per capita average annual cost per Canadian man, woman and child as their rationale for more support, but that $1 Billion annual subsidy is paid by the Canadian taxpayer for services of little to no value.

    CBC News Network must be eliminated with all it's high priced personalities and the CBC should be reduced to a Canadian institution that promotes Canadian arts, entertainment and cultural programming... and their political arm broken off !!!

    1. Anonymous2:09 PM

      hating the CBC because the " CBC number of jobs -- ~7500 " message conflicts with the steve harper criminal PMO " 3,325 spin doctors " ?

    2. Anonymous4:52 PM

      I hate the CBC because I as a taxpayer subsidizes the few CBC-lovers to the extent of ~$1500 annually to slag the government which I voted for. Perhaps our Federal Income Tax forms should have a line that accepts donations for the CBC... and you CBC lovers can fork over $1500 annually instead of sucking money off the masses who ignore the CBC.

      gee and A. 4:52 p.m. sounds like they work for harper and his herd. try again kid.

    The Chretien-Martin regime cut 2400 CBC jobs and $400 Million in subsidies in 1993... and not a seditious peep out of the Liberal media maggots:

    Maybe a NDP government will restore the CBC to it's past grandeur with buckets of $$$$ and bloated salaries and union wages. Hey, let's all vote NDP for tax increases!!


  4. Yes , you can't compare Hitler to @pmHarper; Germans loved Hitler while every Canadian hates Harper...


    1. Anonymous4:45 PM

      Yes, after 10 years of despicable hate/smear/fearmongering by the Lib and Dip loser plus the terrorists in our midst and assorted nutcases, one would think Canadians dislike Harper by now... but not so.

      Come the 10/15 election, true and loyal Canadians will come to the ghastly realization that a vote for the Libs or Dips is by default a vote for another PM from Quebec.... and we certainly don't want another PM from Quebec! Pierre, Mulroney, Chretien, Martin.... asse-est assez ...!!!!

      Whats a dip? Sounds like your talking about a conservative ...

    Harper encouraging Israel to make war on Palestine and the dead Palestinian children are, merely collateral damage? They are every bit as evil as Hitler. I sincerely hope, Israel and Harper are tried for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

    We all know Harper is no Conservative, he even lied about that. Harper was Policy Chief for his, Northern Foundation of 1989. It is said, the Canadian Nazis donated to Harper's Alliance in 2002. Harper also hired his good buddy, Wolfgang Droege and his Heritage Front as, security for Preston Manning. Wolfgang was murdered in 2005.

    Harper does hate Canada and everything with the name Canada attached to it, Harper will destroy. CBC and Canada Post for two.

    Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini were paranoid dictators too, just as Harper's security bill has doubled. All of them lied, deceived, thieved, were corrupt, used dirty politics, dirty tactics and all of them cheated to win. Harper fits that profile, right to a T. Harper is every bit as evil and nuts as the other dictators were.

      That's a pile of despicable vile hatemongering. How can you live with yourself?

      I totally agree ... Harper is also running a criminal government. (null & void)

  7. Is there one or more people posting as Anonymous on this thread? Seems like only one.
    How about a first name? If you a true believer Harperite who likes to post so much, how about starting your own blog. Or maybe you have one.

    1. Anonymous10:35 PM

      Friends of the CBC are a bunch of Liberal parasites who don't care about the beleaguered Canadian taxpayer being forced to give the corrupt corpulent CBC a Billion$$$ year after year after year.

      I'm waiting for the 1015 election and then I will drill the crap out of les deux garçons quebecois who aspire to be King of Canada... just wait!!!

    2. Who votes for Simon to block this Anonymous troll?

  8. I must point out that Mr Harper is as much Albertan as George Bush is Texan.
    Harper is from Toronto.
    Bush is from New England.
    Both carpetbaggers!

      ... and Justin "Chippendale" Trudeau was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.... but in his campaign speech at the Liberal Montreal leadership convention, he started his speech with this renouncement of his Ontario birthplace.

      Just read his opening statement from his seminal campaign speech "Hope & Hard Work" where he ardently declares:

      "I stand before you a son of Quebec.
      A grandson of British Columbia.
      And a servant of Canada."

      Yes, JustinT is a "son of Quebec" because "Quebecers are better" and they make the "best PMs"... all according to him...!!!

    2. You must be a US Republican political intern working for the Harperites.
      Do they pay you ... or is it some US libertarian thinktank ?

    I stumbled on this blog several years ago. Other blogs weren't gutsy or blunt. They sort of tiptoed around the crooked politicians and demigods.

    You seemed "over your top" then, but interesting. Now, I've stepped a little in front of you. Cutting off his little prick and removing part of his tongue so he can never get power again. I wouldn't care if he was crippled for life.
    I'd like to pick up his genetic matches. You don't ever find just one psychopath in a family.

    Quite a change, thank you.

  10. hi everybody...I'm back after my trip to Europe and can start dealing with your comments again. I've had a friend moderating them while I was away and I can see from just a brief glance that he was far too generous. I enjoy comments from readers even those who disagree with me. But I have no patience with Con trolls who visit only to attack or provoke, or make racist comments about Quebecers or any other group. So I will be cracking down on them and if I don't like a comment it will not be published. I spend a lot of time I don't have trying to answer every comment as politely as possible. But there is a limit, and it has been reached....
    As for the last comment...I have always been a little over the top because I believe in trying to entertain readers as well as informing them. And because caricature is one of the best ways to cut through the clutter and get my message across. But I never advocate violence against anyone, only the absolute and total defeat of the Con regime. And I should add, I feel that happy day is closer than ever...

    1. Anonymous1:40 PM

      Your consuming hatred of Harper blinds you to reality; and your attitude to "Con trolls" is just an excuse to avoid that reality.

      Notwithstanding all the vilification of Harper and the Conservatives, you conveniently ignore the fact that the alternatives to Harper are quite unappealing to many if not most Canadians -- another PM from Quebec. If Jack Layton lived, I have no doubt he would be our next PM, and all without this ugly hatred against Harper.

      Hatred destroys democracy and a civil society... and it plunges us into the same hideous society they have in the Middle East. No thank you.

    CBC is very left-wing, thus it attracts few viewers. It has a small market share, but is given 1.1 billion dollars every year. It should be defunded. No media should be paid with money stolen from taxpayers. It's immoral. So is the lying CBC.

  13. hi sassy...thank you. I had a fabulous time and I plan to write about it on the weekend. And thanks for defending me from that crazy who wanted me to commit sepukku. I was going to tell him to go drown himself in a bowl of Ramen, but I managed to restrain myself... :)
