    We all know that the Chinese love propaganda. And we all know that Canada has a hard on for the Chinese. The CCP (some shit like Communist Chinese Party) is ready to broadcast a number of channels in Canada, through Rogers, I believe.

    I can't find any news story, but here is an editorial:


    Fucked up, man..fucked up.

    what the fuck gives
    why do they get their own channels
    i mean not just this but in general. Indian, chinese channels
    fuck off, no one cares. They have as much right for a channel as any other ethnic group. I dont get it
    i want a japanese channel....so that maybe we can see some cool sports on TV finally

    its mere speculation but..... theres 1.35 billion chinese. China is big but not entirely inhabitable. Even if chinese couples are restricted to 1 child.... thats probably 50 million children per year..... First china will try to expand into Australia. Next Alaska then Canada.

    I dont understand why this is fucked up.
    I do understand how communbbist china is fucked up and
    thye problems that exist in that context but there is
    a huge differenjce here in Canada: Choice.

    In China people dont have the chpice to choose non
    partisan programing...but here we can. No one has to
    watch the ccp channel if they don't want to where as
    in communist china they were piping propaganda right
    into peoples bedrooms through loudspeakers.

    Granted I think subliminal messages and subversive
    cultural messages that westerners may not be aware of
    might be hurtfull to some people in Canada but no
    moreso than the political agendas that already exist
    in mainstream news and advertising.

    Free speech is free speech and barring anything that
    goes against the charter of rights and freedoms we
    need to allow equal access to media for all groups.

    I too was wondering how effective the communist propaganda would be in an environment of free speech and free choice. I think it might be quite effective since it is most likely broadcast in their native language of chinese and there may not be comparable programs from chinese-canadian sources.
    Interesting paradox that canada is now censoring the censors.

    As for all of these wild fears of a rampantly overpopulating china taking over the world, I wouldn't bet on it. Chinese population levels are projected to go down, not up. 1 child per family is a negative population growth rate since it takes something on the order of 2.1 children per family for population to stay the same. Further complicating this situation is the fact that many female babies have been aborted due to chinese society favoring males. There is now a significantly disproportionate male/female ratio. I don't remember exactly what it is.

    China still has plenty of manpower to drive on it's economic prosperity and growth, however complicating this is it's increased need for energy since it has outgrown it's own domestic coal supply 2 or 3 years ago, the pressure is already being felt on world markets and the price of oil is projected to continue to rise and potentially collapse the world market if we remain dependent.
