The CBC lies, and we need your help to hold it accountable.

The state broadcaster’s most recent disagreement with the truth came in the form of a forced correction to a story that nearly flipped the Alberta election in favour of the NDP. It was misinformation that took six months to acknowledge.

CBC published a story alleging Alberta Premier Daniel Smith’s office had put direct pressure in the form of email communications on the prosecutorial service dealing with COVID-19 infractions still before the courts.

It would be a catastrophic example of political meddling in the justice system, that is, if it were true.

It was not.
