CBC is reporting that "The premier of British Columbia went on a 2½-minute tirade Thursday morning as he called out the parent company of Bell Media, which had earlier announced thousands of layoffs and the sale of dozens of local radio stations in communities across Canada.Bell Media said separately it would be ending multiple television newscasts and making other programming cuts. Eby called on Ottawa to intervene." AYFKM?
This raging lunatic is the perfect example of everything that's wrong with the BC NDP. This is someone who has absolutely no business sense whatsoever railing on a company forced to make cut backs in the face of declining revenue in a changing market.
The Tyee of the left is reporting that "Eby Blasts ‘Corporate Vampires’ for Gutting Local News and Firing Journalists."
Denouncing corporate vampires. That's the spirit. Let's raise their taxes. That'll show them. Actually it won't. Private companies need to make a profit. They do that in a free market. The problem is the market is changing. Television is being replaced by streaming.
How is this any different that what Post Media News has been doing? They have been slashing and burning the news industry for years so they can have a monopoly on public thought. David Eby and Justin Trudeau are a big part of that. Justin Trudeau's pissing match with big tech just saw a global blackout on Canadian's access to the news. These clowns just don't get it.
Governments aren't supposed to create jobs, they're supposed to create a climate where business can thrive. Everyone is moving to Alberta because that's what their government is doing. The BC NDP is not. That's why everyone is leaving. People and business move to where taxes are low. When Liberal sh*t holes like California raise taxes all that does is force businesses to move out. That means they have less tax revenue than they did before they raised taxes.
