  • Introduction to Video Content
  • In a recent video, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau criticized Conservative Party member Pierre Poilievre for his attacks on independent media. Trudeau expressed disappointment in seeing a political party targeting the media and noted that Poilievre specifically attacks CBC without acknowledging the importance of Radio-Canada. Trudeau emphasized that the Conservatives' regular attacks on the culture and identity of independent journalism undermine Canadians' confidence in the party. He highlighted the misalignment of values and a lack of understanding of Canadians' pride in their institutions. Trudeau also mentioned seeking assistance from the United States to strengthen Canadian institutions and criticized the Conservatives for constantly attacking independent media organizations. He praised CBC Radio-Canada for delivering local content and news across the country, despite facing challenges in recent years. Trudeau criticized Poilievre's approach of running to American billionaires and tech giants to attack CBC, suggesting that it reveals the values and approach of the Conservative Party. Trudeau concluded by noting the party's tendency to defend tech giants instead of making them pay their fair share, indicating a disregard for the interests of Canadians.

  • I think that it's really disappointing to see a political party attack independent media.
  • I'd also like to note that Mr. Polievre believes he can attack the CBC without also attacking Radio-Canada.
  • That's false.
  • We can't have confidence in the Conservatives when they regularly attack the culture.
  • Identity and quality independent journalism that is local.
  • I think it also illustrates quite a lot just how much the Conservative Party has chosen to attack an important institution for many Canadians.
  • And it has chosen to do so.
  • For me, this illustrates a misalignment of values.
  • A lack of understanding of just how proud Canadians are of our institutions.
  • And we even asked millions from the U.S. to come and help us with our institutions.
  • They're choosing to constantly attack independent media organizations.
  • Journalists who are working hard to keep Canadians informed and support our democracy.
  • CBC Radio-Canada serves right across the country.
  • Delivers local news and local content in many regions of the country.
  • That, yes, has been challenged over the past years.
  • But the idea of adding to that challenge is laying on by attacking this Canadian institution.
  • Attacking the culture and local content that is so important to so many Canadians.
  • It really indicates the values and the approach that Mr. Polyev is putting forward.
  • And I think it is telling that in order to attack this institution that is important for many, many Canadians, He runs to American billionaires, the tech giants that they continue to defend in committee and in their approach on our legislation to make tech giants pay their fair share.
  • Conservatives are always there to defend them.
  • So when they're trying to attack a foundational Canadian institution, the fact that he has to run to American billionaires for support to attack Canadians, says a lot about Mr. Polyev and his values.
