Breaking these broadcast rules would results in severe fines, suspensions and license revocations.

The War of the World's broadcast in 1939 resulted in panic, property damages, accidents, injuries ... all because the public didn't know the difference between a show and real Journalism. Broadcasting was heavily regulated for decades after that.

Can we not do the same today? Free speech is one thing... but yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theatre is illegal. 
We can figure this out. Its not that hard.

We can  enforce it with the Ministry of Truth!

With Provable FACTS and EVIDENCE.

Entertainment and Opinion can still exist, just not labeled as "News." Even the left will have to adjust. They've been leaning in this direction too.

"The View" has no reference to 'News' in its title. In fact, its title infers opinion and personal perception.
"Real Time" has no reference to 'News' . . . you see where I'm going with this.

Labeling. Rhetoric. What Republicans have perfected in the last 30 years.  Words (and labeling) DO matter.

Environmental problems have political solutions

Greta Thunberg came to Montreal during Canada's last federal election.  Over a million Canadians marched in the streets demanding climate change action.  Then many participants didn't vote and most of the rest voted for a government that increases our dependence on converting fossil carbon into GHG emissions.

I don't blame politicians for poor governance.  I blame voters.

Environmentalists must stop voting for governments we end up protesting.  Instead we must run for office, volunteer, donate money and vote for political environmentalists who have environmental activism experience, not political opportunists who only have words.

If you aren't part of the political solution, then you are part of the environmental problem.

I think that for some folks that is entirely true.

bill and rebecca are nice enough to let us come in and cut up and we should be more respectful

this is their baby, their livelihood, and i'm actually worried that it may get compromised
