Divisions and attempts to influence in politics is not new to those of us who pay attention to what appears to be directing our destiny. Compromise using logic and truth appears to be impossible. It doesn’t help that the ‘news hounds’ primarily in theory are bought off with subsidy dollars. And, outside sources and opinions are blocked due to endless ‘C’ Policy bills via the NDP/Liberal Party marriage flying straight through to the Senate who only offer mumbles of objection. Freedom of speech and thought are quickly disappearing in this environment.
Provincially, I can’t be the only one to notice who gets the last comment of any news article by the Premier locally or otherwise. Definitely not the Premier herself. Every policy, suggested or planned, reverts to the NDP with tailor-made responses. We all know that for busy readers the last line read is what they remember and consider clarification by the press of what is true. That appears to be the intent! People are just too busy with life, surviving endless and harmful policies by elected governments to become a watchdog. That is the job of a non-monitored press. Misinformation is rapidly becoming our future and social media cannot be blamed. Something needs to change – soon!
