Cdn media and their lack of interest in Cdn Oligarchs

The Cdn media only seems interested in Russian oligarchs. They show no interest in the oligarchs who actually rule in Canada (The Irvings, McCains, Westons Thomsons etc). Of course not, Canada is afterall a democracy is it not? It has never been one. These rich families and they have changed over the years are the ones politicians are beholding to. Through the Council of Chief Executives and other fora the oligarchs tell the politicians what they want and the politician tug their forelocks and do it. Sure is is less visible than the American oligarchy but an oligarchy it is and the rest of us suffer under its yoke as the oligarchs send tax money to tax havens and get laws that enable them to make exponentially larger profits every year. But would the Cdn media report on this? Not on your life because they are owned by the very same oligarchs.
