Woo

Canadian media, particularly the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) like to promote woo. By that I mean such things as:

There is no evidence there is any truth in any of this, but people wish there were, so they believe it anyway. The problem is, when people rely on woo to cure them of cancer, they die because woo does not work. They refuse to try something that will work. Promoting woo is a passive aggressive form of murder.
