Can't touch this!

That's how I'm livin', and ya know...

Stephen Harper is sticking his hands into the CBC.

The Koch Brothers want to snatch up the LA Times and the Chicago Tribune; that is, if Rupert Murdoch doesn’t get to them first.

Wherever we look, we see big business or overreaching government messing with our media.

As independents, we steer clear of big business and government interference.

For our message to Harper, we look to a West Coast luminary and echo his immortal words: “Can’t touch this!”

Be a champion of independent media.
