The default setting of the CBC is Justin Trudeau hard—which is to say squishy—leftist. That being so, the concept of "conservatism" is something that gives the Ceeb the heeby-jeebies.

Here's an example of what I mean--a typical Ceeber "examining" (i.e. trashing) the idea of "reasonable conservative"; to the CBC, that phrase is the mother of all oxymorons.
