Third world problems

"Twelve Million And A Tax Break: What The Globe And Mail Wanted From Justin Trudeau" (Brown).  Spectacular story which will no doubt be buried of how the owners of a prominent Canadian newspaper basically tried to blackmail the Trudeau government into giving them tax and 'charity' concessions with implicit threats of negative media coverage!  I don't see any explicit blackmail, but when a media outlet 'lobbies' the government, coupled with a negative opinion piece on the subject of the lobbying, the conclusion is clear.  It's the kind of corruption you'd expect to see from some shithole country.
