CRAZY: Trudeau-Appointed CBC President (Who Previously Lived In New York) Compares Netflix To Colonial “Empire”


Catherine Tait – the Trudeau-appointed head of the CBC – made an absolutely absurd and crazy comparison while speaking to a media panel.

Tait compared Netflix to a “colonial empire.”

Here’s part of what she said, as reported by the CP:

“So I’m going to just go a little off script,” Tait told the audience, “because I was thinking about the British Empire, and how if you were there and you were the Viceroy of India, you would feel that you were doing only good for the people of India.”

“If you were in French Africa,” she continued, “you would think, ‘I’m educating them, I’m bringing their resources to the world and I am helping them.’ Fast forward to what happens after imperialism and the damage that can do to local communities. So all I would say is, let us be mindful of how it is we as Canadians respond to global companies coming into our country.”

She also compared Netflix to the “beginning of a new empire.”

Her comments were not well-received:

“Fellow panellist Cardin appeared to shake his head as she compared the streaming service to past empires. Members of the audience were heard expressing their disagreement with Tait’s comments.”

Making this even more crazy is that Tait was previously working in New York City when Trudeau picked her. So, she had no trouble living outside of Canada and making money in the U.S., but then compares Netflix to a colonial empire?


With this kind of thinking in charge of CBC, we can only imagine how absurd things will keep getting.

With this extended Leadership it could be that their future is further limited now ? Blessing in disguise?

All of their other tax and tax increase schemes are failing to date. Health benefits, employee discounts, carbon tax, etc. so on to the next areas; computer, phone, digital and internet items. 5 million Netflix subscribers a month times $2, heh that’s another 10 mil a month for them to blow.


– and you were the CBC, you would feel that you were doing only good for the people of Canada.”

Fixed it.

Does this have something to do with space & time?
