While in Saint John, I was surprise how many people asked me the reason that I was no longer on Voice of the Province?
This is a talk show program on Rogers Television.
They invite politicians on the show and New Brunswickers can asked questions to the elected officials.
Rogers television started a new game and it goes against our democratic system.
They took orders from someone < Could be the Irvings or the Lord Government > that I wasn’t allowed to phone in the talk shows any longer.
I have been phoning these talk shows for years and never once have I cross that line.
While in Saint John, I've been asked the reasons I don't called in these shows any longer by many citizens such as this one?
What really bothers me if they won’t accept phone calls from pay phones.
The poor people in New Brunswick are not allowed to call in.
This is a terrible step backwards in this Province.
Rogers Television tried in vain to help Bernard Lord win the Bi-election in Saint John by screening phone calls.
I am told that from now on? Any caller who goes against the politicians of the Lord Government will never be allowed to call again.
This is dictatorship at it’s worst. < Beside the Irvings >
I phoned CFBC talk of the town this morning that told the listeners the same story. I always say- THANK GOD FOR TALK SHOWS!!!
But this morning, I made it perfectly clear that I will no longer say that line because of Rogers Television denying the right to New Brunswickers to speak out!
I will say- THANK GOD FOR THIS TALK SHOW!!!
I strongly believe that if CFBC didn’t have the talk show? Michelle Hooten would have won the election because the Irving media backed her up 100%!!!
Shame on Rogers television joining the Irvings denying New Brunswickers right to speak.
From what I’m told? This Rich Crosby kid who took the place of Dennis Melanson began to give out his view on different issues. He does this at the beginning of the program.
Someone is backing him up big times.
I got the proof because seconds before I was going on the air, the producer told me that this Crosby kid got orders not to take my calls any longer.
So? Was this Crosby kid paid under the table to deny my right to speak?
I will sent a letter to the C.R.T.C. but I’m going to zero in on the issue of pay phone. The C.R.T.C. must investigate Rogers Televsion!!!!
To this little dictator kid Crosby?
If you believe that New Brunswickers are that stupid to believe your views?
You are wrong and don’t expect that this show will make you a celebrity that you can run for political office because I will be right there to tell the public what you really are!
I really don't care if i'm allowed to call but I am a strong believer of freedom of speech especially is a caller don't cross that thin line.
Now? What made me write about this issue anyway?
Must be the weather outside. Raining hard!!!...lol
