More wealthcare - helping Mr. Rogers to $10 billion

From the Globe and Mail, Maclean's no longer worthy of public funding, says Senator:
"A Canadian senator is asking the federal government to revoke federal subsidies to Maclean’s magazine over an article on university enrolment that focused on Asian-Canadian students.
Did you know before now that the Toronto magazine Maclean's receives $1.5 million a year from the Canadian Magazine fund and additional funding through postal subsidies? In addition, titles like Canadian Business, Chatelaine, Flare, MoneySense, Profit and others earn Rogers Communication yet more millions from taxpayers.

Rogers Communications had operating income of more than $4 billion in the last year and the Rogers family enjoys one of the largest fortunes in Canada.

Who do you think is more deserving of public funds?
