Coronavirus – Canadian Propaganda CBC tries to dismiss a “disinformation campaign” saying that people will be sent to quarantine sites – turns to reality months later
A local academic is speaking out after her car was broken into, which she believes may have been an act of intimidation intended to discourage her advocacy work.
“We know what happens when white settlers feel threatened,” she said.
After posting about the experience on social media, Wilson said other vocal BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of colour) leaders have shared similar experiences with her — and say the incidents have left them worried about their safety.
Wilson said she did not report the incident to police. She did say that racialized communities do not always feel safe reporting incidents to police.
Frankie Condon teaches race and class at the University of Waterloo, and has closely followed Wilson’s thread on social media.
She said the actions described in the tweets align with the ways white supremacist groups try to scare and silence BIPOC people. There has been a long history of white supremacy and extremism in Kitchener-Waterloo, Condon said.
“The more worried people in position of power and privilege are about the loss of that power and privilege, the more likely they are to turn to violence or the threat of violence to preserve their social standing,” said Condon.
“Systemic racism” is when your car is broken into, you have a national publicly funded “newspaper” write a sob story about you and how racist white people are to blame (without showing any proof whatsoever).
But thousands of white people being victimized by blacks is just part and parcel of living in a multicultural society. And don’t you dare lump all blacks or muslims into one group and blame then for the actions of a random boogeyman that doesn’t even exist.
Canada’s state broadcaster has given far more coverage to American Democrat vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris than it has to Conservative leadership candidate Leslyn Lewis, a True North review reveals.
Data show Harris netted 500% as many headlines from CBC mentioning her name than Lewis did since the Conservative leadership race commenced on January 13, 2020, with some going so far as to laud Harris’ for “making history” as a woman of colour.
As of August 17, CBC had published 45 different headlines referencing Harris, while only nine for Lewis.
To achieve this count, True North tallied search results from CBC’s website. The final results include all English language media content published by the national broadcaster, including from CBC News, CBC Radio and other affiliates.
Lewis and Harris have both made history as the first black females to run for their respective positions.
CBC promotes the sexualization and gender bending of kids

I would like to give an update on the developments surrounding CBC’s slanderous coverage of The Epoch Times’ special edition on Beijing’s coverup of the virus outbreak which led to a global pandemic.
I would also like to set the record straight that The Epoch Times special edition is in no way “advancing conspiracy” theories or claiming that the virus is “manufactured” as a bioweapon by China as alleged by CBC’s article, as I will make clear later in this statement.
Since the initial publication of its article on April 29, CBC has quietly made substantial changes to its headline three times—all without informing readers of the change or issuing a correction.
Freeland then runs interference and never answers the question:

Another petition from a University of Waterloo student called on the Ontario government to shut down all campuses “to prevent further spread of the virus.” As of Tuesday afternoon it had nearly 30,000 signatures.
Kerry Bowman, a bioethicist at the University of Toronto who was a frontline healthcare worker during the SARS outbreak in 2002-3, said the petitions were “a strong overreaction, and there’s clearly elements of racism to it.”
I’m white and Jewish and grew up in a middle class liberal Canadian home in the ’70s, so I was raised with two contradictory messages about race and racism:
I think the idea was that we shouldn’t talk about race because it reinforces racism. But teaching kids, particularly white kids, that they shouldn’t talk about race isn’t a step toward less racism or greater equity. Instead, it creates silence where existing systemic racism — and the white supremacy that underlies it — continues.
It teaches white kids that they don’t have to think or talk about race, and it contributes to a white, mainstream world that doesn’t care about or acknowledge the ways that black, Indigenous, and kids of colour experience prejudice (and pride).
In the Twitter world stalked relentlessly by journalists, there was a significant flap over the weekend when the esteemed CBC foreign correspondent, Neil Macdonald, now retired, posted that CBC jobs were wholly dependent upon keeping the Liberals happy.
The I-told-you-so crowd was elated, of course.
Finally, the truth!
It began when Conservative Sen. Linda Frum posted a video on Twitter of the Commons’ emergency debate that showed CBC anchor, Rosie Barton, suddenly cutting away just as Conservative mucker-upper Pierre Poilievre was delivering a tough question to the PM about when he knew about COVID-19.
Barton responded to the ensuing vitriol with a rather non-offensive tweet, although she perhaps wrongly assumed the majority of her critics were card-carrying Conservatives finally having their suspicions confirmed.
“If you had been watching from the top, your leader had already asked the same question,” she tweeted in her defence. “We also thought perhaps the death of 31 people in one long-term care centre in Quebec might be important to get to. But do go on.”
