Media dictating foreign policy for Canada?
I don't know about you, but I'm really getting concerned about the print media in Canada. When I read in the front pages of CanWest's Ottawa Citizen really heavy pro-war stuff , as if we, the citizens of Canada, held a mandate and decided to declare war, or ARE at war,  I wonder if it is just me that has missed the vote on this mandate?

It was my great misfortune as a copy editor to be given the task of laying out and handling the copy on a page that contained yet another publish-or-else opus penned by Conrad Black when he owned the Southam newspapers.
