Air Canada vs. CN Rail

Air Canada vs. CN Rail

Air Canada went from a government-run crown corporation participating in Conservative corruption scandals, to a private corporation paying influencers to encourage non-essential travel in the middle of a global pandemic. Would it shock you to know that they've been accused of fostering misogynist and ableist work environments? On the other side, we have CN (Canadian National) Rail, which aside from giving Torontonians a tall building to feel special about, has also committed other crimes.  Here's something wild: for all you ACAB'ers, how about we start by defunding the rail police?! WTF is the rail police you say? Oh, it's just...

TC (TransCanada) Energy vs. Trans Mountain

Finally, some trans representation in this bracket! TC Energy, formerly known as TransCanada, is responsible for the Coastal Gas Link pipeline that Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs are denying consent for. They were also behind the Keystone XL pipeline that Jason Kenney has been crying about since Uncle Joe was elected. Overall, they operate or have shares in 23 different pipelines in Canada, the US and Mexico.  They also have shares in Bruce Power, which includes the largest operating nuclear energy plant in the world. (Cue a 200 comment-long thread argument about whether nuclear energy is the future of sustainable power or the...

Postmedia vs. Quebecor

Have you asked yourself, "Is Brian Mulroney dead? He's got to be dead. What's he doing now?" Well, he's on the board of one our contenders today in the MEDIA MATCH-UP What happens when every small town in Canada is fed the exact same talking points, dreamed up in an office in Ontario or Quebec? Angry Uncles that's what, an army of people who believe they are getting a balanced, multifaceted view on the world but in fact are reading the same repackaged shit. Then having the AUDACITY TO TELL ME THAT PRESS PROGRESS AND JACOBIN ARE LIBERAL PROPAGANDA, I SWEAR...


Husky vs. Suncor

Husky vs. Suncor

If you're like us, you were raised in the utopic haze of Kratz creatures. They told you to make an animal friend today and by god we've spent our lives chasing the unattainable white whale of lemur friendship. Few companies in our bracket come close to the crimes against critters of two of Canada's largest and spilliest oil companies.  It's Suncor and Huskey Energy. If you're not prepared to see oily fowl turn back now.  A great blue heron from the Saskatchewan Husky spill in 2016 that is decidedly not blue anymore because of the environmental catastrophe.  The name Husky may ring a bell to you...


Telecom Showdown Round Two: Rogers and the other one.

Telecom Showdown Round Two: Rogers and the other one.

I've been looking at corporate Wikipedia pages for several days now and this is a first.    Rogers was fined $75,000 after weaponizing the Montreal police against a worker who they believed stole office equipment. The worker fell down the stairs in a violent arrest involving 8 officers, had their home torn apart, personal cell phones and computers confiscated and spent a night in jail over a used blackberry. Can I get an ACAB? Rogers internal investigations team was found to have "made and example" of him to warn other employees. Rogers owns Maclean's, which thrust this bullshit into our collective eyeballs... Some more highlights:...
