"Intravenous McDonald's?": How can Canada catch up with U.S. childhood obesity rates?

Jason & MattRebel Commentators
 

According to a new report, childhood obesity rates are much higher in the U.S. than in Canada. Matt Philips says it's unacceptable for Canada to find itself falling behind America yet again!

He asks (confused) Torontonians how we can get our children fatter and close this "fat gap."

Take note: Deep fried vegetables are on the table!

Then Matt meets an actual American in his travels and finds out his secret...

Matt should get a job on a prime time show. But I suspect since he got his start on a "right wing media outlet " every Canadian network and TV show would avoid him like the plaque. Go south young man! I’m sure we will see you on late night someday.

RICHARD BRINKMAN said: “RICK PLESNIK – My YouTubes on Omar Khadr got thousands of views – I’m certain Ezra Levant had ample opportunity to created his own perspective on Omar Khadr from what he used from my playlist – Thank goodness Levant’s perspective is not shared by the majority of Canadians.” Of course human nature loves a perceived underdog! Does not make it true however!

…Move to America.
True Story: In 1987 I went to L A to work as a groom at Oak Tree (Santa Anita) for a couple months. I put on about 20 pounds. A month after I came back to Canada it was gone. Never had a weight problem and eat what I want. I have no explanation for this strange story.

“He’s been bullied enough by Canada’s corporate news media and Harper Government.” Really? How? Be specific. How convenient those youtube segments are no longer available. Wouldn’t want another perspective to be available would we?!

PETER NETTERVILLE – oh yeah I forgot – The Rebel media has used my Free News Sharing Video on thier news stories regarding Omar Khadr – Those 12 YouTubes are now private and unavailable to the public so that the young Canadian can get on with his life now that he’s free – He’s been bullied enough by Canada’s corporate news media and Harper Government.

PETER NETTERVILLE – Thanks for asking Peter – As I’ve said on numerous forums with others here on the Rebel Media I was invited to participate by Ezra himself when he visited our fine city Edmonton – I like the work both Ezra and Rebel staff post here on The Rebel and I sometimes offer an alternative view on thier news stories from an archive of hundreds of FREE NEWS SHARING YouTubes I’ve produced freely over the years without a penny earned. I do make fun of Ezra from time to time but it’s just for fun – First Nations folks anywhere on Turtle Island would tell you that if they make fun of you its because they like you… I’m Irish settler 3rd Generation living in Edmonton on Treaty 6 territory. I do put my Free News sharing news website on most posts because my Free News Sharing work deserves that recognition – It’s not a business as you keep saying – Its Free News that I produce and it falls under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms – Freedom of the Press.

I do vote NDP so I guess that makes me a lefty, but will I be voting GREEN this time as a courtesy vote because Elizabeth May respectfully read my 900 signature petition in the House of Commons to investigate the events of 9/11 and the 24 Canadians murdered… The NDP Linda Duncan refused to read the 900 I collected in her constituency because she said her party is TOO BUSY forming the next Government… It’s all laid out here in my YouTube. NDP MP Linda Duncan ignores constituents, Investigating 9/11 is not a high priority : https://youtu.be/h6Uttp2zt40

The NDP MP Linda discriminated my sex/ religion and threw me out of a public meeting last May 19, 2015 accusing me of being a threat to Muslim women who were in attendance to the Coffee with Linda Meeting – but that’s another story that I’m currently working on…

This is as good as Rick Mercer’s “Talking To Americans”!

“For the first time in the history of the world more people will die from overeating than undereating this year,” declared New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg last night on “The Late Night Show With David Letterman.”

I think that is great!!!! At least we all have some choice in exercising some self discipline. Because when your starving, it usually isn’t about freedom to choose!

So Richard, since Ezra is kindly letting you promote your business and post comments that insult him (not in this article but other articles), what are you doing to help Ezra build theRebel?

Intravenous McDonalds? More enjoyable the traditional way methinks!

You could almost see in the mind of that one kid in the baby carriage “Is this guy crazy?”

Funny, Matt. Lucky no one decked you.
