Socialist Politician is "Greatest Canadian", says CBC

For those Canadians that always knew the CBC is the biggest promoter of socialist garbage in Canada, you now have the ultimate proof. After much adieu, the CBC has declared Tommy Douglas the 'Greatest Canadian' of all time.

Tommy who?

If you never heard of Tommy Douglas, don't feel bad. You are not alone. "Tommy Douglas is getting the recognition he deserves," declared TV host George Stroumboulopoulos, who served as the advocate for Douglas during the series. "When we started this campaign in the summer, folks had never even heard of Tommy Douglas".

Yet, all those hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars were wisely spent by our state run media to educate the masses. No longer will Canadians go about their daily lives in ignorance. No longer will the uneducated think that a young man running halfway across the nation with one leg to raise money for cancer is our best role model. The one whom Canadians should worship, according to the CBC, is a socialist politician! And, not just any socialist politician, but the "Father of Socialized Medicine".

After the votes were tallied in a back room, the tally results...Well that's not important....Tommy won! He is the greatest. Ahh, if only democracy really worked like that o' CBC.

For those of you who did not know who Tommy was, now you do. So, when Federal and Provincial politicians are fighting each other for health care funds, remember Tommy. When you are in the emergency room of your local hospital waiting hours on end for a doctor, remember Tommy. When you find yourself being treated in the hallway because there are not enough hospital beds, remember Tommy. As you go about your daily life in one of the most heavily taxed nations on earth, $510 Billion in debt, you need only thank one man....

Our greatest Canadian
