A Free Press Or Not

The Liberal government subsidizes Canadian newspapers with a very healthy payment every month.  The Washington Post reports that amount to be 595 million dollars over 5 years.

The Liberal government also pays extra for stories about global warming.

 It seemed to be common knowledge that they also pay extra money for stories about diversity.

 However, a search for confirmation on the diversity payments provided no concrete evidence.

The questions are: given these payments, can the Canadian press still be considered free and trustworthy? Will they still carry stories that are much outside the government narrative?

You may say, "Of course. This is Canada. We have freedom and a free press."

The government supporters in the Soviet Union used to say the same thing about their country and newspapers.

So how about Canada today? 

You decide.
