“If you’re wondering why gas prices have gone up substantially recently- Taxes aren’t the reason. If someone is telling you that you really should be asking why they are lying to you.”
“When the US radical right is going after Canada nobody is safe. When I say democracy is fragile I mean it. We shall survive this onslaught but only if we don’t remain silent bystanders. Stand up for our friend Canada and let your voice be heard.”
Bruce Heyman, former US Ambassador to Canada
Maybe many of us are resisting the Conservative pro-convoy propaganda because we see the enterprise for what it is- the embodiment of a selfish and ignorant disregard for the consequences of their reluctance to get vaccinated. We see the convoy at its’ most transparent- The problem presenting itself as the solution.
Take a moment Canada to savour this small victory for the truth over propaganda. We may have barely passed but most countries fail this test. Consider even in the tight Democrat victory in the last U.S. election Americans at least had significant counterpoints for right wing propaganda. Canadians did not have this luxury.
