Concern Trolling
with the CBC!



Cariboo Marijuana Grow Show - NOT!


It's bad enough that we, the mushrooms of BC (we're kept in the dark and fed you know what) are so poorly served by Global, the likes of CKNW, Globe Media and whatever Canned Waste is called now - but even the CBC, so often accused of being a "leftist" organ, is caving in to the corporate agenda of hiding the truth, changing the subject and basically diverting the public interest and scrutiny from the crimes being perpetrated in our names. Of course after years of attacks on its buddget by governments of all stripes, but especially the fact hating Harper government, it shouldn't be surprising if the investigative resources of the Mother Corp can barely fire up a computer to get the latest information from the Canadian Weather Office.

Therefore it shouldn't be surprising if everytiime the RCMP take time out from killing people or kicking them in the face and sends out self serving press releases - if the CBC runs with it as news for a few days. The latest attack on sanity was last week's manufactured crisis of the heinous pollution left behind by rural marijuana grow operations. Yep these major criminals litter the countryside with relatively small amounts of the same nitrate ferilizer, pesticides and herbiides as the agriculture business as usual spreads far and wide through air, land and water. Of course this is just agriculture - let's not even consider outrageous assaults of economic and enviromental rationality as the Tar Sands of Alberta, or Teck Cominco's 100 years or more of using the Columbia River as an industrial sewer. Speaking of sewers, how's flushing yer terlets into the Juan de Fuca going for all you Victorians?

Where the Colorado River used to empty into the Gulf of California, today if any liquid at all reaches salt water it is a toxic stew of residue from fields that produce alfafa and other crops 365 days per year in the Imperial Valley and drain all their waste into the riverbed that has itself been drained to supply water to taps in Los Angeles and elsewhere. The Chesapeake Bay is rapidly becoming a dead zone, along with its once famous shellfish industry due to large scale chicken and pig factories dumping what could be valuble animal waste into the waterways, but the valuable material becomes worthless, and harmful, garbage in such concentrations, with no nearby crops to feed.

I don't know if other media jumped on this non-story or not, I've been on a bit of a media holiday, but unless the CBC is so freaked out by Harper and his cohorts threats, they should reconsider joining the no brainers in the surrounding media wasteland. I did notice that most calls regarding the pieces about this were highly critical of the stated position, or the value of even covering the non-story.

The blatant corruption in this province, contaminates all. It stemmed from Campbell, to the judicial system. The RCMP, Elections BC. Tampering with the FOI. There has been, many long years of, lies, deceit, corruption, theft, dirty tactics, cheating to win. BC is the most corrupt province in Canada. The media is revolting, they have utterly disgraced and shamed this province. Their sucking up to, Campbell and the BC Liberals, is beyond belief. Do they not know how they appear to the rest of the world? How ashamed the BC people are of them? There is not one shred of, dignity, honesty, nor honor left in this province. The only decency left, is the BC people, who will not sink to their level.

Hi Koot,

Just so you know ... when I try to leave a comment on HOUSE OF INFAMY, the system stops cold and tells me that it has detected the alarming fact that my cookies are enabled. Dear lord, the humanity ...

So being a reg'lar geek myself, I immediately depart and then (here's the brilliant part), I try again! Only this time, I'm able to access the LEAVE YOUR COMMENT place,

and here I am. Nutty, eh?

When you get a minute, please drop in at my place where I have left a tribute to our new

ItReallyDoesn'tMatterWho premier.

You may wish to add a happy word or two.

Found this posting from a blog reader a couple weeks ago (apologies, can't recall who/where), but thought people would be interested to know this.

".... As a result of a story I was following online, I learned that the CBC has an Ombudsman, a post recently filled by Kirk LaPointe, who has chosen to remain resident in Vancouver:
http://www.cbc.ca/ombudsman/

I also found an eight page letter he had written in reply to a complaint filed by the Manitoba branch of the Canadian Bar Association about the CBC’s extensive coverage of the story of interest to me:
http://www.cbc.ca/ombudsman/pdf/2010-11-25-K-R.pdf

I wrote to Mr. LaPointe about my perspective on that matter and in due course received a rather cryptic reply:

“I write to acknowledge receipt of your e-mails, which I have shared with senior information programmers.”

A quick search of the Net revealed that this is a standard reply from the Ombudsman. A virtually identical reply to another person was cc’d to five purported “senior information programmers”, so their names and addresses can be found online. I haven’t contacted them but I’m curious about what someone with such an Orwellian title actually does.

"every time the RCMP take time out from killing people"

What a blatant attack on all the outstanding Members in Red Serge.

Such nice article it was which RCMP take time out from killing people or kicking them in the face and sends out self serving press releases - if the CBC runs with it as news for a few days. RCMP take time out from killing people or kicking them in the face and sends out self serving press releases - if the CBC runs with it as news for a few days. Such a more Catastrophe which make big disaster in the place. Thanks for posting this informative article.
