The Rebel has new Access to Information documents that reveal how Rachel Notley plays favorites with the media.
After Rachel Notley had armed sheriffs remove me from a press conference at the legislature, she had a Ministry of Justice lawyer send a letter to our lawyer that banned The Rebel from all government events.
“Our client’s position remains that your client (The Rebel) and those who identify as being connected to (The Rebel) are not journalists and are not entitled to access media lock-ups or other such events.”
Rachel Notley says The Rebel contributors aren’t journalists. Who does Rachel Notley actually consider journalists?
Environmental Defence, Green Energy Futures and Equiterre. We know this because we now have the media sign in sheets from the Alberta Climate Leadership Announcement from November of 2015. Those three far left environmentalist organizations were allowed into the press conference where Rachel Notley announced her carbon tax.
Rachel Notley banned The Rebel because she is scared of her loudest critics.
