The Truth about Canada: Mel Hurtig

In Victoria on May 21, 2008 in support of his latest book, "The Truth About Canada", Canada's premier Nationalist, Mel Hurtig, dishes the dirt on the media, corporate corruption and even the disappointing and embarrassing performance of Canada in comparison to other countries of the OECD. Mel even names a few names as he covers the garage sale, bargain-box sell-off of our once proud nation. © 2008 Lazarus Productions

  1. You no longer have reporters, you have repeaters.


    The new game began in Canada on Aug. 27, 1980. Black Wednesday, as it became known, was the day newspaper corporations across the country colluded to swap properties and kill competition. The Ottawa Journal and the Winnipeg Tribune folded, and Vancouver Province's owner, Southam, bought the Vancouver Sun. The two had been in bed together since 1950s via a press-and-profit-sharing agreement at Pacific Press that killed the third paper and defended against upstarts.

    Suddenly competition for readers was no longer necessary; these publicly traded corporations now focused on advertiser-pleasing copy as the technique for pulling more ads.

    At least Postmedia has an understandable reason for changing standards: they're legally obligated to maximize profits. But the fact that the commercial-free public broadcaster also ignores the public good suggests that there is a new definition of journalism.
