The tin foil hat crowd (below) would go crazy and accuse you of being part of a conspiracy if you tried to get rid of these shows. I never listen to them or give them much credence.

I really enjoy George Knapp when he is on "Coast to Coast".  He really is the only host that I enjoy on that show.  Sorry Richard.


You ever worry that no one is listening?

I'm guessing that's a reference to Richard Syrett, who does The Conspiracy Show on AM740 Sunday nights, as well as occasionally filling in as host on Coast-To-Coast.

Don't these conspiracy shows violate Canadian Broadcast Standards Council (or CRTC) guidelines on, you know, accuracy?

That doesn't steer into cancellation, it just merely forces a fresh new disclaimer to air before, during and after the show.

YES - If it is filled with lies and hate and incites violence that is not the purpose of free speech.
