As part of their Fall Economic Update, the Liberals announced a $600-million bailout package for the legacy news media industry – in an election year.
This money will be doled out by a panel of Liberal government appointees! .
A healthy democracy relies on an independent press, free of political influence.
Justin Trudeau is compromising both the independence of the media and the integrity of our electoral process with this election-year bailout.
With less than a year to go until the next election, the Prime Minister is once again stacking the electoral deck to benefit himself:
- He has set limits on what opposition parties can do before the election begins.
- He continues to allow Liberal-friendly foreign special interests to interfere in our elections.
- And now he’s about to decide which media outlets will survive and which will be allowed to fail.
Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives will use every tool at our disposal to continue to fight Justin Trudeau desperate attempts to rig the next election in his favor.
