    Medical Lies From The Maritimes

    Medical Lies From The Maritimes

    It was in the winter of 2021 that the world first became aware of a mounting number of patients being seen in New Brunswick with unusual neurological symptoms. A year later, the Government of New Brunswick released a report dismissing the entire issue, claiming there was never a cluster of patients to begin with.
    CANADALAND has obtained thousands and thousands of pages of internal documents that take us behind the scenes of that investigation that once caught the attention of the nation, before being dropped like a hot potato.

Jesse is What Makes Canadaland Great

Jesse has the ability to see beyond his biais and ask hard questions even when they don’t fit the traditional left leaning narratives. He has strong convictions on journalistic practice and holds that standard to everyone- politicians, his guests, and other journalists.

I do wish that he had the time to hire a few more folks willing to ask the tough questions like he does. Most of his his staff seem to have the typical left leaning view points and don’t challenge themselves to see a new perspective or see the nuances in new events. Even is he hired a centre right-leaning journalist it could help balance it out.

Still the best place to understand Canadian and it’s media. You won’t get this quality of Canadian journalism anywhere else.

It’s not called Fort MacMurray

What the heck…it’s Fort McMurray, not Fort MacMurray.

Blowhard

Brown is a blowhard who always takes too long to ask the simplest questions. Unbearable.
