As I write this there’s a convoy of trucks that are effectively blockading Ottawa, Canada. It has been brewing for a week now and has been pretty hard to miss but then, I don’t take any of my news from local news sources.
On Friday I worked with my business partner who is a very clever Elec Eng who takes his news from ABC, Ch7 or Fairfax. When I asked what he thought of the Canadian truckies, he just looked at me with a complete blank.
He’d never heard of it … not even a whisper.
So today I did some Googling (for what that’s worth) and confined the searches to Australian sites. Tried Microsoft Edge too but I got nothing except for a single mention from news.com.au
How is it that such a significant event is effectively wiped from the Australian consciousness?
All of them … all at once?
CBC News in the US reckons it’s the Russians of course.
So how does everybody feel about being lied to on a national scale?
Are we feeling safer yet?
