Employees at Radio Canada (the French language arm of national public broadcaster CBC), spent today scraping jaws off the ground. Stephen Harper accused the lot of being left wing propagandists. Interviewed on Quebec City radio FM93, Harper exposed another facet of bat shit mentality. When asked how he planned to convince Quebec residents to vote Conservative (pay attention because of 75 available seats the Conservatives only hold 5), Harper said he doesn’t believe voters in Quebec are predominantly left leaning, asserting most Quebecers approve of his policies.
“I remain convinced that Quebecers are not leftists, contrary to the image conveyed by some media or the opposition parties,” Harper says in the interview.
“I understand that there are many at Radio-Canada who hate these values, but I think that these values are the true values of a large percentage of Quebecers.”
Recently Harper spokesman Carl Vallee wrote, (in response to a documentary aired on CBC exploring links between Evangelical Christian organizations and the Harper government – “it was becoming more and more difficult for (him) not to conclude that (his) worst suspicions about Radio-Canada held true.”
Under the Harper Conservatives funding for Canada’s national broadcasting treasure has plummeted. Over the last few months, CBC supporters in Quebec organized thousands of Francophone demonstrators, rallying against Harper’s wanton disregard for cultural representation and Canadian identity. Now it’s starting to make sense – blame Radio Canada for Conservatives electing a measly 5 seats in Quebec. Obliterate CBC funding, force cancellation of programming, put hundreds out of work – Stephen Harper loathes the CBC and all it represents.
CBC represents the fabric of what it means to be Canadian. I have news for you Mr. Harper – your bone head decision to mess with CBC is the last straw. Absurd finger pointing, transparent tantrums or attempts to silence the voice of Canada will bite you in the ass.
STOP STEPHEN HARPER.
