There are things I keep wondering about where our media people are concerned. Perhaps it goes back to the George W. Bush days and the weapons of mass destruction that never were and when people who questioned that stance were accused of lack of patriotism. There were no questioning of the media upfront in that era.
Here we are now in Canada, which as a country prides itself in being ahead of American mass hysteria. Yet people do not seem to be concerned with the fact that the last election may well have been stolen from Canadians.
There now have been seven cases of robot calls before the Supreme Court which have had an effect on the outcome of the last federal election. The Conservative government who had promised to back the investigation into this travesty has gone to the Supreme Court of Canada to block it. We should certainly wonder why.
The judicial officer appointed under the Federal Courts Act has thrown out their appeals and stated:
“Far from being frivolous or vexatious, or an obvious abuse, (which the Conservative lawyers had argued) the applications raise serious issues about the integrity of the democratic process in Canada and identify practices that if proven, point to a campaign of activities that would seek to deny eligible voters their right to vote and/or manipulate or interfere with that right being exercised freely – all of which permitted to escape even the prospect of judicial scrutiny, could shake public confidence and trust in the electoral process and in those who in good faith stand for public office.”
My question has to be, where are our media in this situation? Surely this is one of the most important cases relating to Canadian democracy that there have ever been in this country. Why is this not being reported?
