Canadians should listen

Canada is a confederation trying to become a Soviet style federation complete with state controlled media. This podcast isn’t about ending that federation but it is trying to expose the lack of 4th estate in Canada.

Canadians should subscribe and even more so for those so indoctrinated by Canadian media that real facts about Canada makes them uncomfortable.
