It's not your typical government of New Brunswick messaging. But a video post on the gnbca Instagram account is getting a lot of attention for that very reason.

Thats not viral. Its more people than watch the national in a week, but far from viral. The CBC was once a broadcaster for all Canadians. Unbiased. The most trustable. What happened? I was a proud CBC supporter but then things changed. Now it’s always special interests.. and yes they deserve coverage too… but somewhere the CBC forgot about other Canadians. So sad.

remember this one same concept 1992? The queen of ballroom leiomy and voguing!!! Awesome ad N.B. using view bots on twitch just like G4T.V needs to after the hosts meltdown how pathetic Sick propaganda.

'Freedom convoy' needs to lose extreme rhetoric, says association head as truckers reach Toronto | CBC NewsAs the convoy of trucks opposed to a federal vaccine mandate makes its way through the Toronto area, the president of one trucking organization says the protest's original message has been hijacked by far-right or extreme rhetoric. Extreme rhetoric is anything the CBCNews disagrees with. Horse has already left that barn. Interesting to see the CBC (& by extension the current government) already in the 3rd stage of grief - Bargaining 1. Denial 2. Anger 3. Bargaining 4. Depression 5. Acceptance

Sunwing party trip organizer apologizes, plans to sue airline for breach of contract | CBC NewsJames William Awad, who organized a now-notorious Sunwing charter flight to Cancun in late December, said he’s planning to sue the airline for refusing to fly his group back to Montreal from Mexico. Yeah. After the video, good luck with that. Didn't they not board because they didn't agree to the terms? Like no food on the flight. They made their own bed.

Conservative post-election report says O'Toole was 'over-managed' during the campaign | CBC NewsA post-election report on the Conservative Party's 2021 campaign performance found leader Erin O'Toole had a strong start to the 36-day electoral contest but faltered at the finish because he was 'over-managed' and 'over-coached' by senior staff. HannahThibedeau JPTasker ok ... over managed, under managed ... Canadians didn't want him HannahThibedeau JPTasker 'over-managed'? Given his recent behaviour and choices, and those election results/loses - He was not likely managed enough ChantalHbert althiaraj acoyne RosieBarton HannahThibedeau JPTasker I'll admit it probably took a lot of management to take care of that 1 million dollar hotel room studio Erin hid in because he was too scared of voters. The real CowardAtTheHotel.

Police on guard against 'lone wolves' as protest convoy arrives in Ottawa | CBC NewsOttawa's police chief says officials are watching for 'social media actors' and 'lone wolves' who might try to infiltrate this weekend's convoy protesting COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Lone nuts, you mean. Good. That's what is needed. There are far too many people in Ottawa right now that would benefit from this turning violent. This would only play into CBCNews & Trudeau little game of division

(Government of New Brunswick/Instagram) It's not your typical government of New Brunswick messaging. But a video post on the gnbca Instagram account is getting a lot of attention for that very reason. The video, depicting a series of eye-boggling "battles" between Omicron and the booster shot and set to Vanilla Ice's Ninja Rap, has voguing dancers as the booster facing off against a variety of hapless characters as the variant. (Spoiler alert: the booster shot slays, every time.) The video, an edited version of a TikTok video by Best of Vogue, features added captions and a one-sentence message: "Get your COVID-19 booster. In one video, a person could be seen crowd-surfing while the plane was in the air.

Book now at www.gnb.ca/bookavaccine." It's a striking departure from the account's usual feed, which typically features charts explaining winter-plan restriction levels, posters illustrating mask guidance, reminders to obey speed limits and occasional photographs of New Brunswick landscapes. "We wanted to do something fresh, something people would notice," Adam Bowie said in an email." CBC News has asked Sunwing for comment but has not yet received a response.

"Since people aged 18 years and older are now eligible for COVID-19 booster shots, we wanted to think outside the box to reach people within such a broad age range." It appears that gamble paid off. Followers of the account immediately began remarking on the unusual material, many of them expressing surprise and delight. "Social media team deserves a raise for this one," one follower commented. "GNB has no business doing something this fire," another wrote." He said he "can understand why people at home" would be upset seeing that behaviour, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who called the videos "a slap in the face.

"This reel has single handedly convinced me to move to New Brunswick. Give the creator of this a raaaaaaaise!!!!!! .
