CBC’s Barton says she can’t stand Alberta

CBC’s Rosemary Barton admitted on national television that she can’t stand being in Alberta for more than 7 days.

CBC’s Barton says she can’t stand Alberta

The network’s long-time CBC figure made the off-script statement while speaking with a panel on The National.

A panel member said the wildfires in Alberta could affect the timing of the May 29 provincial election results, as some families who’ve been forced to evacuate their homes might not be able to vote.

The delay could be as long as a few weeks, one guest said, throwing Barton into hysterical laughter.

“Because I can’t stay in Alberta for more than like, a week, so I’m not going to be there until the very end,” she said.

“Oh that’s why you’re so interested,” a guest said back. “I just figured it out!” 

The video clip went viral on Friday. Barton has long been accused of shilling for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and the CBC more generally for having left-wing bias.

Last year, after a landslide victory for Pierre Poilievre, the CBC and the Trudeau Liberals were in lockstep with their attacks that the new Conservative leader is “divisive.”

At the Conservative Party leadership announcement that night, Barton got triggered by a panellist who accused Trudeau of being divisive. 

“Over the course of his time in office and especially during the pandemic, [Trudeau] became an incredibly divisive figure who was happy to basically call people who are against him the worst slurs imaginable.” 

“Well, I don’t know if he’s so divisive . . .” Barton clapped back while laughing.

“Well, he’s very polarizing,” the panellist retorted.
