This Just In: Conservatives Dislike the CBC
I've been able to get my hands on their latest CBC-attack fundraising letter, which I share with you here:
Here we go again.
Yes, I am writing to you about the CBC. Canada’s national public broadcaster. A Crown Corporation that receives over one billion dollars per year from taxpayers. A network with a mandate to serve all Canadians.
Like you, Conservative Party members have been closely watching this year’s NHL playoffs, while drinking their Tim Hortons. And we have come to a shocking realization – Hockey Night in Canada has not shown a single game involving Alberta teams these playoffs.
Rather, they continue to show the games of Vancouver, Montreal, and Ottawa – cities that routinely elect MPs from the Liberal Party and their coalition partners, the separatists and the socialists.
The Ottawa Senators games they broadcast were nothing more than subversive attempts to act as the media arm of the Liberal Party, propagating their support for an unelected and undemocratic senate.
Furthermore, Liberal MP Ken Dryden, who enjoys telling you how you should raise your own children, has been mentioned 6 times these playoffs by CBC commentators. Do you know how many times Tony Clement has been mentioned? Zero. Way to stay “neutral” CBC.
This NEP-style slap in the face demonstrates – once again – that we Conservatives are up against a powerful array of vested interests. Vested interests who want to go back to the days of Jean Chretien and Paul Martin. Back to higher taxes. Back to a weakened military. Back to political correctness. And they’re willing to support a highly divisive “Culture War” to take us back. This episode will make for a sad chapter in Stephen Harper’s hockey history book.
I am asking you to do two things.
First, write to the CBC and tell them it’s unacceptable that they ignore NHL teams from conservative regions for the remainder of the playoffs. You can reach the CBC’s ombudsman by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 1-416-205-2978.
Second, please make a contribution to the Conservative Party of $200 or $100 right now by following this link. Unlike the Liberals, we can’t count on the vested interests. We rely on donations from proud patriotic Canadians like you.
PS – Is it just me, or does George Stroumboulopoulos look like a Dipper? I’m just saying.
