Negative interest rates an option in Canada, Stephen Poloz says

As usual, questions about SSRI and other medications, as well as reminding readers about the link between John McCain and “ISIS” found a harsh audience among Kieth Bilous’s CBC censors.
Comments were pre-censored so I didn’t have a chance to accumulate a lot of likes before they killed the comment, as has become customary.
SSRIstories.org. See for yourself.
But…the next day, posing the same question in an unrelated article was Kosher with Keith.
And congratulations CBC, ICUC and Keith Bilous, an all-time new record!
By a remarkable coincidence, I have seen the words “Content Disabled” appear in my CBC comment posts drop considerably since Canadians unceremoniously threw out The Harper Regime on October 19, 2015. But every once in a while, Keith BIlous’ legion of censors will pop up just to remind us they haven’t gone anywhere.
Yesterday, I even made a post that referred to mass shootings, SSRIs and other depressants that WASN’T deleted! Judas Priest on a pony!
Hey, Keith, I hope business isn’t slowing down too much. I saw a tow truck in front of your house. If this continues, you’d better hide the Tesla!
I actually sent an-email to ICUC yesterday asking if their “our clients” section was a complete list of all of their clients, or just a select few. I went on to ask if the Clinton Global Initiative (aka the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation), the Conservative Party of Canada or any pharmaceutical companies are among their clients. Still waiting for an answer.

Comments regarding the military’s conduct in the War of Terror and white poppies found an unfriendly audience among ICUC’s legion of censors around the world.
By Robert Smol special to , CBC News Posted: Mar 03, 2010
…It was in this environment, in early March 1993 that a group of airborne troops set a trap for local teens who were stealing from the base, shooting and killing one in the process. Then, a week or so later, another Somali teen, Shidane Arone, was found hiding in a base latrine.
His torture and beating death at the hands of two Airborne soldiers, who took trophy photos along the way, became the ultimate symbol of what Canada’s involvement there was all about, at least on the home front…
White poppies are hard to come by in Canada. You can order yours in time for next Remembrance Day from the Peace Pledge Union in London. http://www.ppu.org.uk/whitepoppy/. They cost approximately C$20 (including shipping to Canada) for a package of ten.
From the Peace Pledge Union:
The White Poppy symbolises the belief that there are better ways to resolve conflicts and embodies values that reject killing fellow human beings for whatever reason. Our work, primarily educational, draws attention to many of our social values and habits which make continuing violence a likely outcome.
From economic reliance on arms sales (Britain is the world’s second largest arms exporter) to maintaining manifestly useless nuclear weapons Britain contributes significantly to international instability. The outcome of the recent military adventures highlights their ineffectiveness and grim consequences.
Now nearly 100 years after the end of the ‘war to end all wars’ we still have a long way to go to put an end to a social institution, which in even in the last decade contributed to the killing of millions.
My wife is into Facebook. I am not. However, she was saying a “Facebook friend” in Keswick, Ontario (some fifty miles north of Toronto) was bemoaning the number of people walking around town with white poppies instead of the traditional red ones, as sold, franchised, copyrighted, trademarked and enforced by the Royal Canadian Legion, a nationwide chain of drinking halls in Canada. If somebody up there in Keswick, Newmarket or the environs of York Region is taking the time (and expense) to distribute the Peace Pledge Union’s white poppies, I would personally like to thank you. Whoever you are.
Sorry, Royal Canadian Legion. But the red poppy has become synonymous with war and glorification. It has gone beyond remembering the war dead and the brave sacrifice (as I was taught as a boy) to a call to continue throwing our young men (and even women now) into the meat grinder of the u.s. War of Terror. And any suggestion that we might stop this fraudulent war is met with howls of protest and indignation of all the young people who will have died in vain.

I would like to thank the two people each that “liked” my comments before the censors at CBC, Viafoura and ICUC disappeared them.
Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA): Fair Use / Editorial Response
UPDATE ( MARCH 17, 2023): This article has become somewhat of an informal repository of other CBC viewers who have seen their comments replaced by the notorious pink CONTENT DISABLED. One of the most prolific contributors has been “F. Yeue.” I would like to thank “F” and everyone else who has visited and reposted their comments.
And not for the first time.
Every time there has been a mass-shooting and “everyone” is calling for guns to be banned, I have brought up the fact that in EVERY INSTANCE, the purported shooter’s mind has been fried by various psychiatric medications. Often the kind seen on U.S. network television news commercial breaks.
Here’s a peek at what The C.B.C.’s its commenting service Viafoura and its moderator (censor) ICUC found so objectionable:
While all other comments were being posted immediately, this comment had enough keywords in it to flag it for “review” by the moderator (censor). It was deleted within minutes.
A few minutes later…
I then taunted the moderator, posting the word “SSRIs” ten times in rapid succession. Each actually got a “like” before being removed within three minutes.
ICUC Moderation’s (http://www.icucmoderation.com/) job is to provide a “reputation management” service for its clients, which obviously include Big Pharma.
I honestly thought CBC was past this, as very few of its stories are “pre-moderated” now. In the past, ALL comments were reviewed before being posted. But I suppose when you mess with the advertisers, you’re going to get smacked down.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is a wholly-owned agency of the government of Canada, receiving over one billion dollars in subsidies from the taxpayers.
My last comment on the subject…
Charleston slayings lead to changing attitude on Confederate flag
I like how my comments regarding the effects of SSRIs and prescription drugs got likes before they were deleted.
I’m putting my comments and your censorship on my website, LettersToTheBeast, where you can’t take them down.
…Is still there. For now.
I have a message for the CBC, Viafoura and especially ICUC: I will be posting EVERY comment you delete on LettersToTheBeast from now on as a means of demonstrating your pettiness. ICUC, you may claim to be able to “manage” (ie censor) social media and the larger internet.
