I’m going to start lying now … because the CRTC says I can

This update from Michael Geist speaks to the CRTC decision to modify their rules concerning false or misreading news.

In effect, what is says is that the CRTC will now allow our media companies and broadcasters to lie to the general public, assuming that no one gets hurt in the process.

They are lowering their standards when standards don’t need to be lowered.  Did you call the CRTC and ask for permission to lie to the public?  How about your friends and family members?  Did they request more lies with their vitriol?

September 1, 2011 will be a sad day for the Canadian public as this will be the intended day for implementing these new ‘dumbing down’ rules.

It’s crap like this that makes most Canadians believe that the CRTC should be scrapped.  It’s nothing but a Con and large media mouth piece.

To voice your disgust with this change, submit your comments here:

Scroll to the bottom and click on Notice # 2011-14.

It’s unlikely that your comment will be heeded, but it might make you feel better.

  1. The events of the past few days in eygpt bring to light how corrupt any and all current government bodies can be. And it really is a shame. We entrust these leaders with our trust that they will do what is right for the people that put them in the position of power and they abuse it, often times rather blatantly. I applaud the eyptian people for standing up for themselves. it is my hope that the people will be heard & that the current government will do the right thing (stepping down if need be). But I also hope that whatever leadership takes control will be one that truly will workon behalf of the eyptian people.

  2. ready engineering projects…
