Why does Canada seem to get the definition of such basic things backwards compared to most other places? Take for example the word scandal. Perhaps it is the definers of such terminology that cause such confusion. Heaven forbid the "esteemed" corporate media would be playing a role in such misinformation. Why oh why would the gatekeepers of information play such tricks? It's called narrative control and clickbait monetization.
After maximum free exposure and fanfare from said corporate media, the advertised as behemoth United We Roll convoy came and went. From the definition of a safe space rally in Moosomin, SK fully stocked with an old-stock choir, the current elite of the regressive political class did their best to create the definitive Us vs Them scenario to support the diesel brigade on their quest to Ottawa. Reports of 400 big rigs descending on the Capitol Region turned out to be 10% of that. Once there the circus commenced complete with neo-nazis, xenophobes and Conservative politicians calling for the forceful elimination of Them. This is the true dread happening, but not according to corporate information purveyors.
An undeniable fact is the influence of corporations on all governments of any stripe.It's how business is done. Yes, missteps get made and heads roll. But not much changes. Hypocrisy and revenue opportunity create their own circuses. Those who once called Jody Wilson-Raybould a liar now call for her sainthood. Nothing short of resignation of the Government will do. How convenient. But remember this is a circus. Truth is an inconvenience not to be waited for. There is advantage to be manufactured.
