Poll: Canadians’ confidence in media, courts, politicians is low — here’s why

A new Angus Reid poll asked how much confidence Canadians had in various institutions.

    Supposedly, there is a point to the media, politicians, and judiciary squandering their own credibility?
    Everything happens for a reason.

    • The truth is out there somewhere;)

        That’s the X-Files, man.

  • I don’t have respect or confidence in any of these institutions. They are corrupt oligarchies deciding the lives of average citizens.

      Was the Mike Duffy scandal the straw that broke the camel’s back for you too?

      • That happened ages ago, I’m afraid.

        The North American Free Trade Agreement and it’s sell-out of Canada’s oil resources…we sell them cheap crude, then they sell us back gasoline and pretend like they paid full international price for the feedstock…Crude at what? 6-year low, and the corksmokers just jacked up the price of gasoline…wtf? Where’s thge News Media? Oh ya…forgot, they’re off giving Justin a blow-job…

    The SCOC Judges don’t have to pat for their mistakes.

    In around 2004 a Judge ruled that a Tourist had equal Rights in the Charter that protects a Minority group for being denied access to social services.
    So…….the scam started by Immigration Consultants to coach people to vacation in Canada but don’t leave because they could apply for Welfare and get all the benefits of Citizens.
    Since then , 70% of the costs each year for bogus ” refugees” that were rally Tourists was about $500,000,000.00 and counting .
    Liberals pulled a fast one under Chretien , they downloaded the Federal Costs to the Municipalities where these Tourists chose to bilk Canada . Toronto agree to bail out the Liberals and sneak in the Federal Income Tax hikes through the back door at City hall by shifting the federal refugee bill to home owner in the property taxes for Social Services.

    Nice little scam, and when I alerted David Miller to it as to not be complicit
    in the fraud and just tell the Fed’s that all ” refugees” will be redirected to Federal Offices for the Welfare and Health care …….. Miller ignored me and joined in the vote buying because immigrants that did vote were getting relatives to visit and then stay to get Welfare.
    When Mel Lastmen pointed out the Welfare burdens from Immigrants that sponsored someone into Canada via the federal government but was then booted out of the home to become a Welfare case that costed about $75,000,000.00 a year….. Lastmen was attacked by the STAR , CBC , and the parasite on City Council that were complicit already in the first Fraud to allow an Income Tax increase to be hidden in the property taxes for the refugee bills.
    McGullty made it worse as he Downloaded Government Housing cost to the City which is now TCHC with about $1,000,000,000.00 in debt and fraud galore by the socialist marxist pigs that almost had Olivia Chow on their side to really screw the taxpayers.

    The NDP and Liberals rely on the Moron vote, I knew this when I exposed this scam was I connected the dots for the Liberals no longer wanting to talk about the $700,000,000.00 a year Welfare bill for refugees with a 70% failure rate
    while many had lawyers keeping them in Canada 15+ years for some hell of a vacation with paid health care.
    People thought I made this up , but the trick by liberals is to get several things happening at once and just insert the scams far enough apart that people don’t remember why their bum hurts.

    But it won’t be long before a high percentage of people in Toronto are on Welfare as takers while the balance won’t be able to carry the burden for supporting them and “Tourists” via the Property taxes.

    About 22 years ago I warn a co-worker that we better not let the Politicians turn Toronto in a Detroit or Chicago with gangs ans guns along with the welfare states or Gov Housing for the unproductive .

    Tada , Joe Mihevc just announced that the 300,000 ‘Tourists’ in Toronto will get Welfare because they have been paying taxes while here and are entitled to them .
    Great Joe, with 7,000,000,000 people outside of Canada that can come here for your FREE welfare , how many will live in your house so you can pay their bills.

    SCOC at 61% ? I’m sure with a bit of activism we can lower that number.

    (The fact that Bev & Rosie won’t keep their yaps shut will help enormously).

    The Rich buy their Justice, the rest of us, we just get Laws…

    Regrettably, Canadian history lacks the lustre and EDUCATION lent by political human bloodshed.
