The image of Mark Zuckerberg is plastered around Toronto and other major cities in Canada today on a WANTED poster that is the centrepiece of a provocative national advertising campaign launched this morning by the watchdog group FRIENDS of Canadian Broadcasting.
Without permission or compensation, Facebook profits by publishing content that does not belong to it. There is a word for that; it’s called theft. This campaign is about mobilizing public and political support to put a stop to this illegal behaviour.Daniel Bernhard Executive Director Friends of Canadian Broadcasting
Right now, a core team of ministers is gathering ideas from experts and everyday citizens alike on how to shape our economic recovery from COVID-19.
They’re not only looking at where to spend stimulus money — but how we’re going to foot the bill.
This is our window of opportunity to demand a wealth tax that would make Canada’s ultra rich pay their fair share — and pave the way towards closing the massive wealth gap between those who can afford luxurious vacations during a pandemic and those who have to scrape together enough money to feed their kids and pay their bills.
Dear Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Minister of Health Patty Hajdu, provincial and territorial Premiers and Ministers of Health:
Our front line health care workers are already running out of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as N95 masks, surgical masks, gloves, and gowns. We also need access to hoods, face shields, goggles, and other protective equipment. There is a critical shortage of COVID-19 test kits, ventilators, hand sanitizer, and medications that might treat COVID-19 patients.
This is unacceptably dangerous for health care workers and, in turn, the public.
We understand the shortage is because many items were manufactured in China and Italy and that there is a global shortage.
