Is it odd that we have gone from being a nation that respects the impartiality of the press to one in which government has no qualms about personally bashing senior journalists when they deliver unfavorable news? Government leaders take note. You serve as an example.
To the surprise of some, Canada is 10th on the scale of press freedom in the world, as determined by Reporters Without Borders (RWB). A lot of Canadians would probably expect us to be number one, but that's only because journalists here aren't often assassinated, arrested, or beaten up by government thugs.
