A conservative news channel for Canada? I thought we already had one (CTV News) ...

... but if Quebecor, the parent company of Page Three Girl masters Sun Media, wants to bring entertainment masquerading as news to Canada, so be it.   Just let us have the choice of whether or not we want to subscribe.   And please, include it in the comedy package, not news and information.

It's just that we are already too saturated with information as it is.   And besides, we really can't call it consumer choice when only three or four media conglomerates provide all the choices.    There is no effective firewall between print and broadcast outlets anymore.   What we need is to break up the oligopolies and allow more players into the game.   This would mean more innovative programming, more informative news, and most importantly a broader variety of voices -- to lessen the chance Canadians are brainwashed from either the left or the right.

National Post, Sun Media, Corus, Astral, and CTV.

And the right cry they have no voice.

The CTV is NOT conservative. I don't know why you'd think it is. Not even close.
