Canadian government hires PR firm to help online image
According to a local news outlet, the government paid a media company $75,000 to monitor and respond to postings about the east coast seal hunt.
“This is only the tip of the iceberg,” said Alex Jones.
Jones said numerous governments in Europe and the Americas have taken part in similar activities for years and that this is nothing new. Governments have placed ads and interacted online in support of government programs, specific laws and political views to control information and public perception.
“The bigger issue just isn’t privacy, it’s the creepiness of the government secretly doing this and that the scale of it is only increasing,” said Jones.
There are very few individuals rising up in protest in Canada, the United States or anywhere else demanding governments halt such actions. Jones said this is because the occurrences are hidden in plain sight.
“Canada is a jack-booted thug government with a bunch of well meaning Canadians who were ignorant to just how draconian their government is. Canada is one of the biggest police states on earth,” said Jones.
Jones continued, “Canada is one of the most oppressive regimes in the western world; they are just very good at hiding it."
