Canada is in the TOP 10 of the LEAST corrupt countries in the world.

Are you suggesting that since Canada has less corruption than many countries its residents should have no right to question its policies and laws? I also am originally from a country where corruption is rampant, but I would never grant any "less corrupt" nation a free pass.

Now do I think Duck Platter is a bit on the paranoid side and has a collection of Tin hats in his/her closet? Possibly...but that does not mean that they do not have a right to challenge the Canadian government.

No. What I am suggesting is that if he has something to say, then he should come up with proof and/or sources that demonstrate what he's stating.

He said that "the media only reports what the government allows them to report". Well then, where is the source that prove this? If I had said this about China then people would agree with me because I have proof, but you can't just go around saying those comments without any facts and expect people to take you seriously.
