Heritage Minister & Iqra Khalid plan next step in outlawing free speech

It was nothing more than a statement from the government condemning racism, said the ruling Liberals. 'Conservative' columnists Andrew Coyne and Kelly McParland told us it was nothing to think twice about (if those guys are conservatives then we're living in Bizarro World) and any criticism of it meant you were a fascist (yes, this guys are middle aged SJWs).
Of course, as all of those opposed to Motion 103 (M103) knew, it never stops with a motion. The motion becomes a bill, the bill becomes law, the law gets precedence, and then throw out the Constitution because we live in  police state.
Guys like Coyne and McParland like police states, because they feel as part of the media establishment they'll always be protected by government (as long as they tow the line, which they are only too happy to do, in return for their government subsidized paycheque). And Heritage Minister Melanie Joly and MP Iqra Khalid (the author of the motion) like a police state, because they are the government and figure as long as they're in control they should have the right to dictate what rights the people should (and is more the case) shouldn't have.
So no sooner is M103 is passed than Joly calls the reaction to it, "unacceptable." She's shocked that in a (supposedly) free country, with (supposedly) free speech, people can up and express their displeasure with government (yes, a lot of it was vulgar, but when did she elect herself chief of the morality police?).
The left-wing National Post (not to be confused with the radically left-wing Toronto Star) quoted spokesperson Safwan Choudhry from the international Islamic organization Ahmadiyya (with out any reference to who exactly they were) as saying, why do people [in Canada] think it's okay to launch attacks (online comments) at elected officials. Got that? The establishment media are quoting a foreign funded international Muslim organization on why it's not okay to question or criticize our elected officials.
Joly said that in the short term she is just ignoring and blocking those making vulgar criticisms (or any criticism we suspect) which is her right, and the right of all Canadians. Don't like it what's being said, don't want to engage, then put down the newspaper, turn off the radio, TV or computer.
Of course doing the sensible thing is never the strong suit for any government official.
Her next task, the one those of not employed by government subsidized legacy media saw coming, is to censor social media for inappropriate comments, which as always, begs the question, inappropriate to whom. Well, don't worry, the government will sort all that out, a
nd of course they always get it right, they're the government. Then we'll have Messrs Coyne and McParland to tell us, 'oh this is nothing to get excited about, go about your business, nothing to see here citizens.'

Royal Canadian Navy scandal kept under wraps with help of MSM

A somewhat recent Maclean's magazine article (Canada's Time, except, amazingly, more left wing) was headlined: The (Canadian Vice Admiral) Mark Norman firing mystery.

Then goes on to provide absolutely no analysis whatsoever regarding the mystery, other than putting it down to Canadian defence bureaucracy. There's some hard hitting news from Canada's newsmagazine, about the largest scandal to hit Canadian politics since... well ever, nothing comes close, the Sponsorship Scandal pales in comparison to the the ongoing Navy shipbuilding scandal. With the exception that the media this time won't touch it.

Another article earlier this year from Canada's national broadcaster, the CBC, written by senior defence reporter, Murray Brewster, mentioned the vice admiral's removal, then did the bait and switch to the pervious Conservative government's purchase of sea sparrow missiles. That story was a non-scandal scandal the leftist media has tried to promote, criti…

DON'T support Rebel Media!

The above headline might seem odd coming from a right-leaning libertarian website, but I assure you it isn't.

Rebel Media is on a fundraising kick this holiday season, hoping to be the Breitbart News of the north. But they can never be Breitbart News for one fundamental reason, they are not a truly independent media outlet like Breitbart.

Media in Canada (and yes I'm speaking from firsthand experience) is about as corrupt as it gets. In print media four major companies control just about everything, and to make matters worse, they don't compete against each other, they illegally collude to secure monopoly markets for themselves.
And on top of that, they are inter-owned. Of the four print media companies, Glacier Media, Black Press, Torstar and Post Media, Post Media owns (approximately) 15 percent of Glacier, and Torstar owns 15 percent of Black Press.

Now you might think the two inter-owned entities would at least compete against each other, but you'd be wrong. Glaci…
