ALP is a pro-arts and culture publication and believes in free and open citizen’s access to education, history and free speech takes precedence over corporate entities.
It is clear that the Globe and Mail (www.globeandmail.com), once perceived as valuing many of the same things, has been compromised by right wing interests. This is clearly evidenced by their tech editor’s support of limiting internet access for most Canadians and especially of their recent editorial board support of the reigning Conservative party.
ALP never intended to pro-actively enter the fray with a political endorsement – we always saw ourselves as cultural observers – but with the obvious lack of independent media that has been replaced by shills and yes men, ALP endorses voting NDP this election.
Clearly, there are enough resources in our country to bring everyone out of poverty, enable every single person to enjoy free education and full health care for anyone within our borders. It is simply a question of priorities, and obviously the Globe and Mail Editorial Board only has career opportunities in mind.
