Wow, The Public Outcry Worked!

I am so happy that the CRTC is withdrawing it's proposal to allow lies in the news in Canada. People responded to this proposal with a huge public outcry and it worked. Almost 100,000 people signed a petition to stop this, and the CRTC listened. What a relief! It makes me feel like the people can make a difference! Check out the article:

Thank goodness! Aren't we born with an inherent love of the truth? Sometimes I wonder. This is good news indeed.
