#74 INTERVIEW w Tom Korski – What’s the rush on internet regulation/censorship?

Tom Korski is a senior reporter at the investigative journalism website Blacklock’s Reporter, which talks about stories the media is missing. Ottawa is trying to ram through Bill C-10 to regulate the internet, despite threats to free speech. The Canada Infrastructure Bank doesn’t build anything, but it pays its executives a lot (just don’t ask how much). And the Memorial to the Victims of Communism is way over budget, even though it’s not built.

#91 BIG ISSUES- GOVERNMENT DEBT

The federal government is more than $1 trillion in debt. It’s borrowing $424 million every day.  That means that each Canadian is on the hook for about $30,000 in federal government debt alone.

Director Kris Sims broke down what each party plans to do about the debt, and what they found may surprise you. Check out the CANADIAN TAXPAYERS STORE!   Like this show?
