When the press silences itself rather than report good news, that press is no longer free.
I know this story is about Canada, but Americans had better pay attention, this is not about a nation; it’s about a mindset. This story and the next one are about what you might call the United Far-Left States, which is multinational, borderless and faithful to no ideal but its own need to control.
