Trudeau’s state broadcaster, the CBC, is so dishonest they’re forced to print a correction nearly every week to combat their own misinformation.
Based on the CBC’s ‘Corrections and clarifications’ page, the federally-funded news outlet has issued 33 corrections or clarifications between March 20, 2021, and March 24, 2022. This means that the CBC is more likely to have lied on any given week than to have consistently told the truth — and that’s based on their own self-reporting.
The severity of these corrections ranges from minor clarifications to straight-up lies about the Freedom Convoy and the types of donations it received and correcting their use of propaganda emerging from the Ukraine-Russia war.
The Counter Signal has long been documenting the CBC’s harmful misinformation campaign.
On October 14, 2021, the CBC conceded that they used a mannequin in place of an actual ICU patient to make the pandemic look worse than it actually was. Indeed, it turned out the carefully crafted scene wasn’t even from a hospital.
Earlier this year, the CBC lied in a different way, misdirecting their audience by obfuscating two protests to suggest that the Freedom Convoy was about truckers protesting icy roads. It’s ludicrous.
Other times, the CBC lies by omission.
As The Counter Signal reported on December 20, less than a month before the Freedom Convoy began, the CBC failed to mention the millions of people worldwide participating in historic protests against vaccine mandates — many of which happened in Canada and were extremely newsworthy at the time.

Nonetheless, despite their coloured history with the truth, Facebook went right ahead and anointed CBC journalists as ‘fact-checkers‘ for the 2021 election, ensuring independent media had to work twice as hard to report the truth on social media.
More recently — in fact, just two days ago — the CBC lied by omission once again, claiming that Justin Trudeau received a standing ovation in the EU Parliament while failing to mention that he was denounced in front of the entire EU several times and nine-tenths of the Parliament left in protest before he started speaking.
All of this is to say, ‘Who needs Russian propaganda bots when you’ve got state-funded broadcasters like the CBC’?
