Unfortunately, that’s not an option on this year’s ballot. You can vote to defund the CBC — that’s what the Conservatives hope to do with their majority (that and make Terry Milewski disappear, I suspect). But you can’t vote to defund the National Post. All you can do is never give them money or click on their ads, which I definitely advise you to do.
Following up hard on the heels of what easily qualifies as the Worst Column Ever, Lawrence Solomon’s advice that people shouldn’t vote and that young people definitely shouldn’t vote, today the Post brought the crazy in the form of two ludicrous new pieces. In one, Solomon (already on record as a climate change denier) claims that we are in the midst of a spectacular outbreak of “global cooling.” In the other, Bill Morrison says that too many people go to university already, it’s a waste of tax money, and we certainly shouldn’t let the liberal-leftists send any more. And we certainly shouldn’t spend taxpayer money building new universities so people can get educated in their home communities instead of “another part of the country.”
Solomon, as I’ve previously covered, is just an idiot. Morrison’s topic is more harmless (no one turns to the Post for advice on education policy), but it is certainly more hypocritical. You see, I know of Bill Morrison. I know that he most of his entire career teaching as a professor in a publicly funded university, and I know that he spent the latter part of that career in a public university which was specifically built so that people in northern BC didn’t have to travel to “another part of the country” to go to school.Tweet
