The Globe and Mail — owned by Canada’s richest oligarch, David Thomson (net worth $46B) — wants you to know that the recession and inflation are actually really great for young and poor people. Actual quotes from the article:
"If young adults are paying attention, this might be the financial opportunity of their lives."
"Frankly, it’s been hard not to make money."
"You don’t have much of a choice except to be more prudent".

This is not satire.

The Alberta Court of Appeal just destroyed Jason Kenney's two-year persecution of Pastor Artur Pawlowski.

They ruled that the injunction against him, his arrest, his jail time, the censorship order and fines against him were illegal. 2. Kenney -- and his disgraceful justice & health ministers -- spent millions of dollars hounding Pastor Artur and his brother Dawid. Kenney set the precedent for Justin Trudeau's political persecution of Tamara Lich.

Today the Court of Appeal ruled it was an illegal vendetta.

1. The normalization of Trudeau's corrupt henchman Gerald Butts and the marginalization of Jody Wilson-Raybould, the only honest woman in his cabinet, shows the decline of Canadian democracy.

Brenda Lucki sees what is rewarded and what is punished, so she has corrupted the RCMP. 2. What Butts did was straight out of a Sopranos episode -- he tried to pressure the prosecutors to drop criminal charges against his friends. He was rightly thrown out of the PMO (into a very soft landing at @EurasiaGroup, where he had directed sole-sourced contracts).

Why is Trudeau ending the no-fly list for his unvaccinated enemies?

1. In February, the trucker convoy broke the false consciousness that an endless lockdown was accepted by all Canadians. The political parties, the media, the courts & businesses had perpetrated that falsehood. 2. That didn't dissuade Trudeau -- in fact, it made him more vengeful. But it showed Canadians they weren't alone if they disagreed with Trudeau's civil liberties bonfire. And the truckers removed Erin O'Toole, Trudeau's Conservative lockdown collaborator.

1. This censorious bigot is in charge of @UCalgary’s disinformation project. He’s just a garden variety left-wing propagandist, funded by both Trudeau and Big Pharma. He dresses up his hatred in pseudo-academic jumbo-jumbo — and the Media Party buys it. 2. I was embarrassed for the @policy_school for even publishing his propaganda. It’s rife with errors — not knowing basic factual information about journalists like @johnpilger & @ggreenwald. And just bizarre statements like: @TulsiGabbard is “US-influenced”. Huh? So cringe.

This irresponsible judge publicly denounced the peaceful trucker convoy as “the beginning of anarchy… to take other citizens hostage."

He must recuse himself from any case touching on the truckers. But the damage is done: he signalled to lower judges to throw the book at them. So now that he has revealed himself as a political activist, by denouncing a peaceful political movement using Trudeau's language, he doesn't like the fact that he is being criticized as all politicians should be. He wants it both ways. Really, he wants censorship.

Randy Hiller is an elected member of the Ont. legislature. Trudeau’s police are jailing him for supporting the truckers. Canada is no longer a free country. We’re only partly free. Hillier is a political prisoner. But because he opposed lockdowns, the media will cheer his arrest Hillier was recently deplatformed from Twitter. I've seen it before: politically marginalized people are silenced; and when when they lack the ability to make their case they're arrested and prosecuted. Did the police contact Twitter, like they did with the trucker GoFundMe?

Rebel News now has more than one million email subscribers.

More than one million social media followers.

400,000,000 views/impressions in the past 30 days.

We are the largest news media company in Canada.

People trust us.

Sign up now to see why: RebelNews.com. We're obviously not the largest in terms of resources. We have 52 staff; Trudeau's CBC state broadcaster has 7,500. We have a modest budget, all of it from our viewers. The CBC alone gets $1.5B/year from Trudeau.

The more Trudeau pays journalists the less trustworthy they are.

1. This is the most scandalous story of the trucker rebellion.

A WhatsApp chat group of Mounties boasting about the cruelty & violence they plan to use against peaceful protesters, and laughing at injuries done to civilians.

This was leaked by the one honest cop still in there. 2. The first thing is the WhatsApp group itself, titled "Social Musical Ride 2022". Those are the Mounties who specialize in ceremonial parades. But this time they were brought to Ottawa to drive riot horses into the crowds. Looks like about 25 to 50 people in this chat.

LEAKED RCMP MESSAGES: “Time for the protesters to hear our jackboots on the ground”.

Trudeau's RCMP Commissioner must resign.

The RCMP officers must be immediately suspended and prosecuted.

That dirty cop Bill Blair must resign.

This is unforgivable: rebelnews.com/leaked_rcmp_me… Look at them laugh about their plans for violence. Who is this Andrew Nixon of the RCMP? Who is Robin Thibault? Why are they laughing about violence? Are they the ones who committed violence today?

1. I just spoke with Alexa Lavoie, our brave reporter who was just assaulted by Trudeau's police. She tells me a cop hit her three times with a club and then shot a tear gas canister at her leg from point-blank range.

Trudeau has instructed his police to attack journalists. Image 2. Alexa says she was specifically targeted by a cop who saw her camera. She says he came up to her and beat her and pushed her down. She says he tried to knock the phone out of her hands, to stop her from filming.

1. Under Harper, Canadian banks were considered the strongest in the world. No banks collapsed during the 2008 financial crisis.

Under Trudeau, banks have becoming political playthings, being weaponized against a vague list of enemies. This is an unprecedented political risk. 2. But the world of finance is interconnected. Many Canadian banks operate in the U.S., have customers there, and are also regulated there. Does Trudeau think he can order @RBC to seize a customer's bank account in Florida? That's what the Emergencies Act order suggests.

1. Trudeau has no legal justification for invoking the Emergencies Act.

It has never been invoked before -- not even on 9/11, or the 2014 terrorist attack on Parliament.

Trudeau called the truckers "terrorists" but everyone can see that's a lie.


2. Tonight Trudeau called the truckers, and the countless citizens cheering them on, "dangerous" and "not peaceful". But in fact there has not been a single act of violence committed by any of them in two weeks.

1. The Legion head office has been colonized by woke, anti-veteran extremists. They’re hated by the grassroots members (including me). Discount anything from this official twitter account — it’s obviously just Trudeau talking points. 2. The Legion hired a leftist named Nujma Bond who has brought Critical Race Theory into the heart of the Legion. I remember when she freaked out that I had a book launch there. She said I was banned -- the local veterans laughed at her and welcomed me. cbc.ca/news/canada/to…

1. Let me show you the law used to freeze the truckers' money. (I don't think they're actually seizing it; I think it's safely in a U.S. bank.)

Here's the government's press release. If I can find the full order I'll post it. They're using s. 490.8 of the Criminal Code. 2. Here's the link to s. 490.8 of the Criminal Code: laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/c-46/… It's a "a restraint order... in respect of any offence-related property". The kind of thing you'd use to seize a drug-dealer's speedboat, or cash.

1. My American friends don't believe me when I tell them that not only does Canada have a state broadcaster, but it also has government comedians who do government comedy on that government broadcaster.

I know you think I'm making that up, but this is one of their accounts. 👇 2. It's a contradiction to be a government comedian unless your job is explicitly to mock the government itself, like Will Sommers. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_Somm… He was a jester, a kind of official opposition given legal immunity for challenging the king where others would be punished.

1. I think I know how this trucker rebellion is going to end. Hear me out. 2. Two days in a row, Liberal MPs have publicly distanced themselves from Trudeau's fiasco. He's never had such a crisis before and he's never mismanaged it so badly. Gerald Butts' usual advice - smear everybody as racist sexist Nazis - isn't working. It's made things worse.

1. The first thing to know about the media is that they're lazy. They'd rather re-write a government press release than get up from their desk and report from the field -- especially when it's -20° out.

So they repeat Trudeau's lie that the truckers are racist and sexist.

...2 2. The second thing to know is that in Canada, more than 99% of journalists receive a payment from Justin Trudeau. Here's the list of the journalists who took Trudeau's $61 million pre-election pay-off: rebelnews.com/exclusive_news…

It's more than 99% of working journalists.

BREAKING: Ottawa Police move against peaceful protesters, arresting truckers in the streets.

More to come from our independent journalists. Follow us at ConvoyReports.com. I just spoke with our reporter @lincolnmjay. He says that when he showed up with his camera, police seemed to stop what they were doing. He has not seen an arrest with his own eyes yet -- the situation is very dynamic. Will report more later.
