Fake news is not just in the U.S.

PM Trudeau is putting the country into a debt spiral we may never recover from.

Interesting that you should talk about “fake news” in your March 10 edition. Indeed, USA president Trump is dead on when he says the media is feeding us fake news.

Here in Canada we are getting fake news every day. About 75 per cent of the news on TV is about what US president Trump is doing or not doing, or whether he knows what he is doing or not. But we are not the USA and these things are of no concern to us.

What is news in Canada is that PM Trudeau is putting the country into a debt spiral we may never recover from. But not a peep about that in the media.

What is news in Canada is that our current PM is the greatest liar in the country.

Some prominent Aboriginal chiefs have called him a liar.

David Suzuki has called him a liar. The people who wanted change in our voting system have called him a liar.

The people who are concerned about the national debt have called him a liar. Seems to me that qualifies him as a liar. But no word of that in the media.

Another example of fake news is the media calling the illegal migrants coming into the country via the backwoods refugees.

They are not refugees.

They are illegal migrants who have broken the law of the country the moment they set foot in it.

Yes, fake news is alive and well in Canada.
