Ezra Levant was on the Stephen Crowder show a couple of weeks ago to talk about Canadian politics and has a good point about “government comedians”. It’s true; what kind of self respecting comedian accepts a government paycheque and willingly belongs to a union? It’s absurd.
It’s a good listen if you can make it through the poor sound quality in spots (obviously the Skype connection wasn’t working great).
It creates a conflict of interest in that you have these government funded mouthpieces on a government funded television network who of course are going to be all for the candidate and party that promise MORE money for them. This shouldn’t be allowed.
