    A Speaker Of Truth – Hurray For Alberta! 


    This is all news to me.

    In Canada these days, freedom of expression is vastly curtailed, especially on issues like multicult and sexual maladjustment. Politicians in all parties are guilty of allowing this situation, but the role of the media in getting The Rebel banned from reporting the decision-making of a provinicial legislature is shocking.

    Pravda Canada, aka the CBC…

    Think back to that propaganda video, which featured –

    …the doxing of two alleged members of Quebecois nationalist group Atalante. Their names, photos, and places of employment are broadcasted in full by CBC, without redactions of any kind.

    ========

    For months, our left-wing competitors have banned us from even walking into the Alberta Legislature to report on the news.

    I know that doesn’t make any sense. What power would reporters have to determine who gets security clearance and who doesn’t, in a public building? That’s insane.

    It’s the sort of thing you’d expect to see in an unfree country like Iran or Venezuela, not a country like Canada. Especially not in the freest province, Alberta.

    Well, yesterday the Speaker of the Legislature effectively abolished the left-wing press gallery and the bullies who run it, by taking away their power to ban their “enemies” from the premises.

    The Speaker accredited us directly, giving us the same privileges as every other reporter — including security passes.

    The only thing the press gallery ever had was their power to punish people. That’s gone now.

    It’s a total victory for freedom of the press and a welcome setback for the “cancel culture” that has been on the march through Canadian society.

    Here, watch this quick video:

    Reporting from the Alberta Legislature: Sheila and Keean are officially in the Press Gallery

    This is just the latest free speech victory we’ve achieved here at Rebel News. Last fall, our lawyers raced to the Federal Court for an emergency injunction forcing the election debates commission to accredit our journalists then, over Trudeau’s ban. (We won.)

    In some ways this is an even bigger victory — it disrupts the obsolete tradition of treating journalism like a closed shop, a privileged guild where only friends of friends are allowed to participate. It’s a huge step forward for democratizing the news and letting in other voices.

    No wonder the Media Party hates it, and fought so hard against it.

    We’re in. And for that, we thank the Speaker of the Legislature, and our lawyers.

    And you. 

    Fighting against the press gallery, the National Post, and the province of Alberta has cost us thousands of dollars in legal fees — costs that no journalist should have to spend just to report on the news. Unlike our competitors, we don’t get free money from Trudeau. We never take government money. We’re 100% supported by our viewers.

    If you were one of the people who helped chip in to pay for this fight, thank you.

    If you haven’t had a chance to help yet, please consider it — because we still have $6,000 in legal bills to pay for this. It’s unfair, but it’s the way it is. Fighting for freedom isn’t free. To see all the work we did (including some of our lawyers’ powerful letters) please click here or go to http://www.LetUsReport.com

    Here at Rebel News, our main job is reporting the news. But sometimes to do that job, we have to stop and fight for our fundamental freedoms. Somebody’s got to.

    Yours truly,

    Sheila Gunn Reid and Keean Bexte

    Accredited journalists

    P.S. Since when did reporters become censors? Since we started telling the other side of the story, that’s when. It’s bad enough to have to fight government censorship, but other reporters trying to gag us was even more depressing. Thank God we won.

    If you can help us cover our legal fees, please click here — thanks.

    Turdo Stomps Press Freedom In Canada! Protest! Petition! 


    A long time ago, the left cared about civil liberties and freedom of the press. Not any more — at least not when it’s Trudeau doing the censoring. So the job has fallen to us — and our excellent lawyers.

    Click here to sign our petition, and chip in on this page to help us fight in court!

    ooooooooooo

    Passing this along – Turdo’s a disgrace, as bad as his unlamented Papa!

    Once again, Justin Trudeau has banned our Rebel News reporters from asking him questions. This time he’s banning us from his daily press scrum about the pandemic.

    So, once again, we’re taking him to court.

    Today, we filed a lawsuit at the Federal Court of Canada. Click here to read our nine-page lawsuit. And click here to see a short video I made, explaining our case:

    Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Trudeau has illegally censored our reporters. The last time was during the 2019 federal election when Trudeau banned us from covering the leaders’ debates. We had to race to the Federal Court of Canada to get an emergency injunction to let us in. The judge agreed with us and ordered Trudeau’s bureaucrats to let us in.

    Well, here we go again!

    Trudeau spent over $131,000 in tax dollars to fight us in court last time, hiring five lawyers. I don’t know how they managed to bill that much money — maybe they were from SNC Lavalin or Bombardier or something. Our lawyers cost us $18,000, which is a fair amount. Trudeau’s lawyers cost seven times more to run the same half-day trial. And they got thumped.

    We’ve got the same legal “dream team” fighting for us again, so I’m hopeful. 

    Here’s the key point in our lawsuit: Trudeau himself isn’t censoring us. What’s so bad here is that Trudeau has instructed the non-partisan, neutral civil service to censor us. And that’s why we’re suing.

    We’re not asking a court to order Trudeau to talk to us. We’re asking the public service, the so-called non-partisan bureaucrats who work for the Government of Canada, to stop blocking us.

    They’re the ones who operate the call-in system for the press conference. They’re the ones who are doing the censoring. And that’s how we’re going to win this lawsuit.

    It was illegal when the debates commission did it, and it’s illegal again now. 

    Please click here or go to LetUsReport.com. Read the lawsuit for yourself. Sign our petition. And if you can — please chip in to help us fight against the army of lawyers that Trudeau will throw at this.

    We’re suing to get our reporters in.

    But we’re really suing for all Canadians — to strengthen freedom of the press for everyone, and to hold Trudeau to account, where the Media Party won’t.

    Yours truly,

    Ezra Levant
