“I wouldn’t be prepared to think I would be successful in arguing that communism is right for Canada at the present time. But such times might come,” said Pierre Trudeau.
As far as idioms go, one in particular best encapsulates the government-media-public dynamic within contemporary Canadian society: “You can’t see the forest for the trees.”
Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as such:
“To not understand or appreciate a larger situation, problem, etc., because one is considering only a few parts of it.”
How beautifully this encompasses the story of life in Canada under our ruling Liberal government. As perpetrated by government’s relationship with media, citizens of our country receive the sound bites, but never hear the entire song.
It’s all delivered in piecemeal fashion. Covid to erode Charter rights. Government’s purchase of media. Internet censorship to restrict free speech. Euthanasia to relieve us of our elderly. Transgenderism to erode masculinity. Abortion to limit Canadian births. Add to this a newly unveiled Liberal immigration policy of 500,000 migrants every year.
Put it all together in a woke liberal blender, and what emerges? Any takers for a post-modern socialist state? Anyone up for a pre-ordained, systemic transition from democracy to dictatorship? CAP know Justin Trudeau is. As for 38 million Canadians, we have little choice in the matter.
