My fellow FReepers, I am very happy this is happening. Michelle Malkin (www.michellemalkin.com)has caught on as well. You can help us canadian freepers by sending this gomery thing to all US newspapers. Also remember MOST of our tv channels are american. I would like to see the Liberal arresting US media for reporting the corruption since they have banned it.
Lets look at some recent headlines about our 'Government':

At the risk of sounding like "Bunny with Pancakes", please tell me what this is all about. Links if you've got them, or a <50 word summation?
I hope you are correct.......that there are cracks appearing in the MASSIVE liberal iceberg that is Canada.
Basically there's bad stuff going on, and the government has threatened any media outlet against reporting the details.
There's no First Amendment in Canada, and it shows.
I did see Michelle Malkin's blog today, and I confess I didn't follow ALL the links - but I couldn't seem to get a story with just-the-facts. So I'm still not sure exactly what this scandal is all about. Can anyone explain?
(It's been a rough couple of weeks folks)
ok, will keep checking this out. Thanks for the tip.
Kind of like how the media tried to spike Monica?
treat this as Watergate x100. You get the idea.
Unfortunately trying not to be condensing, I feel that a number of Canadians are a bit "a bit simple, too naive". They could not care less about the corruption at the Dominion's government as long as His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales' ceremony of blessing is shown live on the CBC this Saturday.
From Captain's Quarters blog:
"A political scandal involving the Public Works Ministry, a government effort called the Sponsorship Program, and allegations of corruption in the ruling Liberal Party has Canada abuzz with rumors of payoffs, Mob ties, and snap elections. For the last two years, Canadian politics has been gripped by the so-called sponsorship scandal tens of millions of dollars in government contracts which were funneled into advertizing firms closely connected with the Liberal government for little or no work, but with shadowy rumours that much of the money found its way back into Liberal coffers."
only Liberal would insult average people intelligence. Are you one?
I have no idea if you can get the ABC-radio Network anywhere in Canada, but John Batchelor's show is usually all over stuff like this. Will check it out tonite.
No, I mean "a number of" and it is not all. I stand by my belief.
i hope the US media and world press cover this.
The established "mainstream" media won't cover it. They would not want to embarrass their ideological mates who they hold as role models for the States. I think the WSJ, Washington Times and Fox will cover them. And so will National Review, American Spectator and the Weekly Standard.
Across the pond expect the Financial Times, Daily Telegraph, and the Economist cover on these. But nothing from (continental) Europe.
I found it helpful to catch up. (Sorry to sound like such an idiot tonite... I'm on death overload.)
this scandal also links to mafia, Paul Maurice, Paul Desmarais (Power Corporation) and lots of others. Seems to be center around Quebec, again.
The difference being that, in America, the Media would willingly comply with the silence, if the government in power were Socialist.
