CBC Speculates If Russians “instigated” The Freedom Convoy Movement

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on January 29, 2022

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, as if to make sure Canadians remember not to take them seriously, speculated today over whether or not the Russian government is trying to “fuel” or even “instigated” the Freedom Convoy movement.

They somehow came to this wild realm of speculation when a CBC host was interviewing Liberal Minister of Public Safety Marco Mendicino and theorizing that somehow Russia is going after Canada for supporting Ukraine.

The CBC host states that:

Given Canada’s support for Ukraine in this current crisis with Russia, I don’t know if it is far-fetched to ask, but there is concern that Russian actors could be continuing to fuel things as this protest grows, perhaps even instigating it from the outset.

This is patently ridiculous seeing as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has refused to send any arms to Ukraine during the Russian buildup of military forces along its border. Trudeau has been an enabler of Russian aggression if anything.

On top of the strange assumption that Russia would do anything to Canada based on the current situation in Ukraine, the CBC is also smearing Canadians with their own tax dollars and floating out a theory that all of their concerns about government overreach and vaccine mandates are a Russia-instigated operation.

This is sheer foolishness, especially since the host at CBC nor Minister Mendicino, who buys into her theory as possibly true, provides zero evidence that this could actually be taking place.

It just demonstrates the hatred that the legacy media has for Canadians who stand against the overreach of government and promote pro-liberty messages. The CBC truly has contempt for those who do not want to buy into their propaganda and so they simply try and make those Canadians who still listen to them hate the convoy supporters. 

It is trying to divide and conquer through disinformation, and it won’t work in the face of the momentum and unity the Freedom Convoy 2022 is generating.
