Are you fed up with the feds?

A lot of Canadians are outraged with their federal government’s handling of the trucker protest that included invoking the Emergencies Act and freezing bank accounts of those who supported the protest.

A lot of Canadians are furious with the federal government for punishing the oil and gas industry that gives us our high standard of living, and could do so much for global energy security … while they fly all over the planet in private jets to reach the pinnacle of hypocritical virtue signalling.

A lot of Canadians are annoyed with the federal government’s alarmist and inaccurate climate change rhetoric used to justify their attack on the oilpatch.

A lot of  Canadians are upset with the federal government for the firing of two top female politicians who stood up against government meddling in the SNC-Lavalin corruption case

A lot of Canadians are mad at the federal government for a list of scandals that is far too long to list in this space.

A lot of Canadians are distraught because of the federal government’s direct (CBC) and indirect (tax credits for the others) funding of media companies that ensures the government will never be held accountable for their misdeeds.

A lot of Canadians are really mad.

Sadly, most will do little or nothing to push back.

But you can. For the expense equivalent to a weekly coffee, you have a chance to make a difference right now by supporting truly independent and extremely accurate journalism.

Yes, of course, it is self-serving for me to suggest that you sign up to be a member at BIG-Media.ca, but, given the current state of the fourth estate, establishing a trustworthy, accurate, and widely read news site is as important as anything we can do.
