For all the people saying this is a hoax, I will tell you that indeed it is NOT. Almost a year ago to this time I recall watching on CBC the report on
NewsCorp wanting to open a Fox North right wing branch of news here in Canada. As a matter of fact I even SIGNED a petition to stop this from
happening. I subscribe to Openmedia.ca on Facebook and the regularly update on things like this. The backlash from the Canadians citizens, thinking
that our broadcasting laws where about to be torn down by Stephen Harper and his cronies, was immense and thus the CRTC decided to not allow this to
I also read the entire source article in the OP and although it is coming from a blog and not from an actual credible source, I found non of the facts
to be false or misleading, to the best of my knowledge.
Now, we do get American news channels here in Canada, including FOX, but these are mostly on a pay basis. Basic cable (no bundles, no digital BS
packs) does not include them so we willfully subject ourselves to their lies by wanting more useless TV channels to flick through.
Now as far as the law goes... well, I watch CBC, CTV, and other mainstream Canadian news and I feel that they are just pushing the same propaganda as
their American counterparts but there is a fair amount of investigative journalism done here in the Canadian news that you don't see on FOX or CNN.
CBC also often broadcasts documentaries that favor the ATS Style of thought rather than a the mindless drone styles. I don't LOVE CBC or ANY msm
source but its a hell of a lot more tolerable than American news and I for one am relieved that we won't be seeing a Fox North here.
Edited Side Note: All these Americans claiming this DID NOT HAPPEN? Since when do you even give two Sh*ts about what happens here in Canada, enough to
pay attention to it and know it for fact? I may be clumping you all into the same group and I apologize for that but generally Americans know NOTHING
about Canada and Canadian affairs because they have enough of their own problems to worry about. Canadians, on the other hand, know a load about what
is going on in the USA because it greatly effects what happens here.
