The Trudeau government talks a big game about ‘defending the media’ and the ‘free press.’ They regularly pose as the defenders of journalism, and claim that the Conservatives are the opposite. Yet, the reality is the exact opposite. While the Harper Government certainly had a strained relationship with the biased left-wing press, it turns out that the press was more free under the Conservatives than under the Liberals. As reported by The Post Millennial, Canada has fallen a full 10 points on the World Press Freedom Index. In 2015, we were in 8th place. Now, we are in 18th. Of course, we recently saw this anti-press freedom event on display, when Chrystia Freeland – ironically attending a ‘Defend Media Freedom’ conference, tried to block two Canadian journalists from asking questions.
