Ever wonder why your Canadian dollar is valued at so little and your taxes are so high? Well, because there are endless exercises to appeal the Middle Classes here. Too many make work programs for the bored folks up in Ottawa, and now the Competition Bureau is going to look into the massive swap between Torstar and Postmedia.
This is a joke. Torstar has nothing to worry about.
And neither has Postmedia.
When it comes to media concentration, the Canadian government has spent good cash money being absolutely useless.
You cannot expect anything to be different this time, either. It does not matter what government body you are dealing with, the results are always the same.
Journalism in this country was always fragile, but now the rate of decline is rapidly increasing.
Consider it a done deal.
It would be more honest if the Competition Bureau admitted it is useless, has no teeth, and ergo, will not spend taxpayers' money on a farce; so that the Middle Class can understand the reality of the situation, the truth about what is happening so they know where they truly stand, and that there is no group of benevolent and efficient servants called They who will clean up the mess so that Everything Will Work Itself Out In The End. Not happening.
And the cataclysm continues unimpeded.
