Trudeau Throwing Out Again Millions In Corruption

Published:

Trudeau Find A Way To Spend Despite Financial Claims

Trudeau new bombshell report exposes shady plot to buy positive coverage from the biased CBC. Despite claiming financial hardship, the public broadcaster somehow scored an extra $42 million in Liberal budget funds.

The CBC and Liberal government have long had a cozy, symbiotic relationship that continues to raise concerns about bias, cronyism and misuse of taxpayer dollars. 

This friendly cash infusion comes despite the CBC just months ago threatening imminent layoffs and programming cuts, only to conveniently backtrack now with bailout in hand. The perpetually circling money carousel between Trudeau and the CBC reveals deeper issues with accountability and reform.

Is the CBC now just a propaganda arm of the Liberal Party? Are they trading biased news for bailouts?

Many have accused the CBC of blurring every ethical line between journalism and politics. This massive budget windfall will only fuel suspicions of an unholy alliance that serves neither taxpayers nor democracy.

How far will Trudeau go to keep the CBC’s glowing coverage flowing? And how long will Canadians tolerate their hard-earned money being used to push Liberal Party propaganda?

Trudeau Showers CBC with Additional $42 Million

By now Canadians should not be surprised by the Trudeau government’s action, the Trudeau government is once again throwing taxpayers’ money at the CBC instead of demanding fiscal restraint. Despite falsely warning of job cuts in December, their irresponsible budget allocates an additional $42 million to the public broadcaster. This is typical Liberal tax-and-spend waste.

The CBC claims the funding will save jobs, but its bloated bureaucracy should look inward to make cuts before burdening hard-working Canadians. With over $1.4 billion in annual public funds, there is surely room for efficiency rather than more handouts.

Moreover, the budget wastes millions on athlete funding and sports commissions. Supporting amateur pastimes is clearly not an essential government function. Their priority should be critical services, not entertainment.

The budget allocates an extra $16-million over two years to help support athletes, including those with concussions and mental-health issues, and to advance inclusion and diversity.

The budget also included $35 million over five years starting this year to support high performance through the Athlete Assistance Program; it would still get an additional $7 million a year afterward. 

Circling back to the CBC, this cozy relationship between the Liberals and the corrupt organization benefits both parties, The CBC gets to keep asking for public funds, while glowing coverage helps the Liberals politically. It is a taxpayer-funded conflict of interest.

The CBC continues to closely align its coverage with Liberal talking points on issues like the carbon tax, gun control and identity politics. They have devolved into a propaganda arm rather than an unbiased news organization.

But clearly, investing and paying off a News Channel that only speaks in the favor of the government is a win-win situation. This budget proves the Liberals have no interest in fiscal restraint despite massive deficits. They would rather tax, borrow and spend recklessly than make difficult choices to put Canada’s finances in order.

Trudeau doesn’t care about funding quality journalism as much as having a friendly outlet to push his agenda. He expects positive coverage in exchange for preferential budget treatment. It is a quid pro quo funded by taxpayers.

Canada needs more fair and balanced journalism. The CBC has strayed markedly from its original public mandate. Yet still Trudeau rewards them for backing his ideological crusades.

Conservatives recognize that an unbiased public broadcaster would serve Canadians better than a Liberal Party mouthpiece. Voters need objectivity, not partisan cheerleading from their news sources.

A Conservative government would reform the CBC to restore proper journalistic standards. More opinion diversity and less political bias would help redeem its reputation. If not, defunding should be considered.

Trudeau’s perpetual CBC bailouts are just another example of Liberal fiscal mismanagement. Canada deserves leadership that will be prudent with public resources.

Polling shows nearly 60% of Canadians believe the CBC favors the Liberals in its political reporting. This is devastating for their reputation as an unbiased news source. I think it’s fair to say that most Canadians want the CBC defunded.

Canadians should reject Trudeau’s expensive symbiotic relationship with the public broadcaster. Both the CBC and the Liberals would benefit from some tough love going forward. Canadians deserve an impartial CBC focused on keeping citizens informed.

CBC’s President Enjoys Funds Every Now And Then

CBC President Catherine Tait claims the funding will preserve jobs, but in reality the bloated CBC could find ample savings through overdue cuts to its cushy executive compensation packages. However, efficiency is unimportant when Liberals keep signing blank taxpayer-funded checks.

Previously, the CBC threatened imminent layoffs and programming cuts in a transparent ploy to secure bigger handouts from their Liberal benefactors. Now with new funding in hand, those threats have conveniently vanished for the time being.

Shamefully, $14.9 million in bonuses were still awarded to CBC executives last year, even while crying poor to the public. This exposes the utter lack of financial accountability at the CBC under the Liberal’s negligent oversight.

At a January 31, 2024 meeting of the House Heritage Committee, MP Catherine was questioned about CBC/Radio-Canada’s plan to cut 800 jobs while still paying bonuses to executives.

In response, she defended the executive bonuses as performance-based pay, not frivolous awards. She argued the federal government supports investing in the public broadcaster when needed.

MP Catherine’s defensive stance on CBC executive bonuses reveals the Liberal government’s position. Despite cutting hundreds of jobs, they believe taxpayer-funded bonuses for managers are justified. This shows where the Trudeau government stands – willing to keep funding and protecting the CBC, including controversial executive compensation.

After it was reported in December 2023 that CBC/Radio-Canada planned to lay off 10% of its workforce, amounting to over 600 jobs.

Bloc Québécois MP Alain Therrien raised this issue at the House Heritage Committee, questioning whether they were aware of the significant job cuts.

He also noted that CBC President Catherine Tait’s contract was just extended 18 months to January 2025. Therrien suggested it seems contradictory for Tait to claim she will fight disinformation while cutting 600 jobs..

Catherine was also grilled and questioned two months ago about whether she is still going to hand out executives bonuses. Previously she had defended the bonuses as performance-based pay. But this time, Tait reversed her stance, now claiming the decision on bonuses is made by the CBC Board of Directors at the end of the fiscal year.

Trudeau Enjoys Fake Mouthpieces

The cozy Trudeau-CBC alliance encourages this blatant waste of taxpayer funds. In return, the CBC serves as a propaganda mouthpiece to aid Trudeau’s partisan interests. This quid-pro-quo is an affront to journalistic integrity.

CBC President Tait ludicrously claims the organization is underfunded, despite receiving billions annually. The Conservatives know the only solution is dramatic structural reforms, not perpetually giving more money to Liberal cronies.

During the latest heritage committee appearance, CBC President Catherine Tait defended the public broadcaster’s funding levels. “At $33 per Canadian — a dime a day — CBC/Radio-Canada is one of the worst-funded public broadcasters in the world, with four times less funding than the U.K. and France and eight times less than Germany,” Tait said. “Until that situation changes, we must continue to manage with what we have and do our very best to stretch limited resources to meet our mandate.”

Clearly, Liberal favoritism and lack of oversight has bred deep corruption in how the CBC manages public funds. Canadians deserve better than Liberal propagandists squandering their hard-earned money.

The Trudeau-CBC unholy alliance erodes public trust in institutions. Canada needs a fiscally responsible government that will finally fix the broken.

Apparently what CBC wants CBC gets.

Conservatives aim to break this endless loop of Liberal favoritism and CBC cronyism. The CBC should support itself through public-service journalism, not endless reliance on the taxpayer dime. If reforms fail, defunding must be on the table. The CBC needs tough love, true independence and accountability. Not more public money with no strings attached.

Canadians deserve better from their public institutions. The CBC has strayed from its purpose into a partisan abyss. A biased broadcaster does a disservice to all Canadians. Restore proper standards, enact real oversight and end the cash giveaways until public trust is renewed.

The Trudeau-CBC relationship is emblematic of a bigger problem – Liberals addicted to spending and entities addicted to public funds. Canadians ultimately pay the price through higher deficits and institutional decay. The time has come to intervene and rehabilitate this high-cost, low-benefit dependency. Canada deserves responsible leadership that respects taxpayers.
