THERE IS NO BROADCAST ASSOCIATED WITH THIS EDITORIAL.
The CRTC (Canadian Radio And Television Commission) does everything in its power to control who gets to have a voice on Radio and Television anywhere in Canada.
And they also get to control what Canadians are ALLOWED to hear and see.
It is just about a year now that the CRTC has allowed Canadian Cable and Satellite carriers the right to broadcast FOX News.
And even at that; the self-styled sanctimonious protectors of Canadian broadcasting wanted to put the same type of restrictions on FOX News, as they did on Al Jazeera, the Arab/Moslem TERRORIST mouthpiece.
So now that the CRTC has licensed Sirius and XM into Canada, they’ve managed to keep out Howard Stern, FOX News, WABC, and Right Wing Talk. But they did allow Air America, the Far Left American Broadcaster.
I have XM through the USA. I pay a monthly fee of $12.95 (USD) for my first Radio, and $6.95 (USD) for my second. And I get to hear EVERYTHING!
Truth be told; there is virtually nothing worth hearing on Canadian Radio, in comparison to what the Americans have to offer.
Once you hear what REAL uncontrolled FREE SPEECH sounds like vis a vis the US brand of Talk Radio, no Canadian who treasures diversity and real freedom of expression would ever tune into the crap that is served up daily on a protectionist CRTC platter.
I do not speak just for myself.
All of my friends and family who are subscribers to the US service are staying exactly where they are.
Why in the world would they want to spend just about the same price for the Canadian systems, when they’ll receive so much less?
Canadian protectionism strikes again.
