CBC Fake News - Trump Win Crashed Site

Recommended Posts

As expected, the nonsense fake news story from Canada's state broadcaster (CBC) about President-Elect Trump's election victory crashing Canada's immigration web site is crashing on its own.   Why did the CBC run with the fake news story ?

 

Quote

An immigration website that was supposedly overwhelmed by Americans wanting to flee to Canada because of a Trump presidency was more likely brought down by foreigners scrambling to get a basic travel document before a deadline.

CBC News has learned that the website for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada was already in trouble hours before Donald Trump's victory became clear on Nov. 8, the day of the U.S. presidential election.

That's because foreign travellers faced a Nov. 10 deadline to obtain so-called "electronic travel authorizations" online before they could fly into Canada. They apparently flooded the website before that deadline to pay $7 online for electronic delivery of the mandatory travel documents, known as eTAs.

... In fact, a CBC investigation showed that the website itself had design flaws and wasn't properly tested before going live.

Because that is what the CBC does well at. When was the last time the CBC ever said anything good about Trump?

What has he done that is so bad? Has he done something that has affected your life in some way?  Over.

It's because of fake presidents.

You must mean the fake ones before the Trump, right?

The most serious thing he has done is to put a halt to the already inadequate measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A four year delay will have an impact on atmospheric carbon levels.

In other areas, he has created the international impression that the United States is no longer a reliable partner. 

President Reagan had a clear understanding of his own limitations. To overcome that, he surrounded himself with advisors who knew what they were doing. That is what made him a good president. Mr. Trump's administration suffers from a gravitas deficit. As David Frumm puts it, it is an administration of kleptocracy.

Great...that's makes Trump as "dangerous" as any past or present Canadian prime minister on "climate change".   He is in good company.

I agree. The move away from fossil fuels should have been underway thirty years ago. I should have been an international effort since the effects are going to be world wide. The problem with President Trump's action is it not only reverses american efforts, it also creates obstacles for the efforts of everyone else.

Perhaps, but this is one of the reasons Trump was elected (won "blue" states). 

American presidents are not responsible for the climate change actions or inactions of other nations.

Indeed, seems he was elected to create these and other obstacles... to make America great again.

I apologize for initiating thread drift.

While the CBC's report was in error, they also made the correction. I don't think it qualifies as fake news. Had they persisted in the incorrect report without acknowledging the error, then that would be fake news.

While technically true and in keeping with standard media practices, it still underscores how such errors are readily made and, more importantly, propagated by those who want to have others believe it is/was true.   Access to and the velocity of new media errors are not easily remedied by an old school "correction".

If it wasn't fake news...it certainly was false news, and Trump has successfully seized upon such opportunities.

Neither are we responsible for your president's failures so make sure you keep that coal smog that Trump seems to like so well inside your borders OK?

In fact SSC still don't know what the cause of the crash actually was.

I think that you should be talking about China and India as being the ones who are really adding greenhouse gas emissions into the air. North American and Canadian vehicle manufactures have done their fair share of trying to help reduce gas emissions. Canadians are starting to pay high carbon taxes just to keep the greenies and Native Indians happy. It pretty much appears as though all this talk about gas emissions and global warming is an excuse by environmentalists, Indians and anti-industrialists to put people out of jobs, and nothing really having anything to do with the environment. Those fools appear to want to send us all back to the stone age. 

David Frumm knows all about kleptocracy. He belongs too and supports that global elite establishment gang that loves to steal from others.

Why in all that's holy, would Canada continue to sell our oil at a tiny fraction of what it will be worth when the rest of the world runs out. Leave it in the ground until we have the monopoly. It the meantime, we are the Saudi Arabia of uranium and, more importantly, we have the Candu reactors that are thorium compatible. Exporting our nuclear technology will provide jobs for Canadians, especially western Canadians, for centuries.

As for Mr. Frumm, calling the Republican Party a "global elite establishment gang that loves to steal from others," a bit strong. You are including some pretty eminent people in that statement. Barry Goldwater, John McCain, Ronald Reagan to name a few. The GOP is hardly global.

Trudeau doesn't want jobs for Canada or Canadians. The only jobs that he wants to create are jobs for legal and illegal criminal so-called refugees, and new third world immigrants. We could extract our oil and gas and sell it to Canadians at maybe half the price that we pay already. It would help create plenty of work for unemployed Canadians who need a job, and help save taxpayer's plenty of money for other needs and requirements. We don't need oil from a country like Saudi Arabia who treats women like chit, and kills people by throwing them off roof tops for anyone who does not abide by or kiss the butt of Islam. Canadians don't need the rest of the world to survive. We can do it all pretty much all alone if we had the leaders who gave a dam about Canada, and not the rest of the world. 

I was talking about the ilk like Frumm and McCain who are not real republicans at all. They are both globalists and part of the elite establishment that only believes in wars with countries that do not abide by the globalist elite rules and programs and agendas. The GOP and the Democrats have always been globalists together because they are one and the same group, and both are under the control of the globalists. As far as Trump goes, I am not sure if he is a globalist or not. That awaits to be seen I guess.
