I'll sign.
And those companies want: gifts to the rich, no medicare (and they get the tax breaks, not the people who will start paying for health care that corporations don't think they need), more jails, less sanity.

It is bad enough Canwest bought the Gazette and removed Quebecois viewpoints from the op-eds to give us the Albertan lack of perspective (even on sports); if they go further there will be literally no difference between Fox News or the National Post.
