The View Up Here is an idea that Glen Type Guy thinks Canada is ready for. He understands how difficult it is for people outside of the usual suspect media "commentary" bubble to even get their pulse taken. Never mind asking their opinion or giving them some truly important information.
The last decade has seen news gathering and objective investigative reporting virtually disappear for the most part. News is now Infotainment. News must make a profit. And nowhere near enough people like sour candy compared to those who like the super sweet fluffy candy.
And the aloof, indifferent, unconcerned governance we get has taken full advantage. Parties are brands. False platforms are products. Votes are purchases. There is definitely no shortage of sales force members either. On all sides, for all manner of products.
It seems when Glen looks into something that concerns him, he finds an awful lot of things never mentioned by the sales force. These things are almost always not "positive selling points". So they go without mention, if possible.
Glen Type Guy draws inspiration from those bucking this trend. In print. On the airwaves. On your screens. Writing books. Creating art. Trying to get the truth out. They are out there. Glen supports and salutes them.
Glen Type Guy wants to help. He invites everyone to join him, which will make "us". We are the people. We are Canada.
