Is Canadian Media exacerbating national division because it's lucrative? Postmedia almost fulfilled their goals to elect Andrew Scheer - like the U.S. media did when they helped to elect Trump - and often portrayed Alberta as a rising hotbed of separatist angst when the #Wexit noise really comes from a minority of discontented Conservatives having a temper tantrum. Prime example of Gaslighting: "This idea of Alberta as this poor, woe begotten, economic basket-case is a myth, one that opposition politicians here like to trade on. But it's a fairy tale."
Part 4: Conservative Economic rhetoric is Gaslighting
Andrew Scheer goes on and on about forcing the Federal Government to "live within its means" and that invokes old discredited fears about Canada's accumulating debt and our deficits. Scheer claims PM Justin Trudeau made a “mess” of our economy & his "massive" deficits will mean increased taxes that our children will inherit. Conservative fear-mongering about Canada's best debt-to-GDP-ratio in the G7 is gaslighting. Our children also inherit massive assets and like any mortgage they may pay on for 20-30 yrs, increased equity in ownership is a huge bonus.
