REVEALED: Access to Information docs show who Notley NDP consider “journalists”

Rebel Staff
 

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.

This is just confirmation of what we already knew. Rachel Notley always has room for her adoring fans in Big Labour and Big Green.

Rachel Notley banned The Rebel because she is scared of her loudest critics.

By “being 90 minutes late” I was referring to the media lock up for the royalty review announcement reported by Gunn Reid on January 30. She writes:

“Rebel Contributor Holly Nicholas was in the royalty review media lock up since 9 am. She had checked in as media, showed her ID and her press pass and was allowed in.
But things changed when I showed up for the 11 am press conference around 10:30. I was told I would be able to go in at 11 because the reporters inside, Holly included, were under a press embargo until then. Moments later, Holly was asked to leave.”

It seems that Gunn Reid wanted to attend the announcement at 11 in the same room where members of the media had been locked up since 9 am. The kerfuffle she caused led to Holly Nichols being asked to leave. Had Gunn Reid wanted to go into that room she should have arrived by 9 and signed in, as the others had done.

Jay Kelly lied, “Oh yeah, she arrived 90 minutes late, too late to sign in.”

No she didn’t. Does lying make you feel good? Do you even recognize when you lie or is it just so instinctual as a socialist POS that is comes natural?

Saskatchewanian here. You can imagine my relief when we opted not to elect NDP. It was palpable, to say the least.
commented 2016-04-07 01:12:24 -0400
Strange that Sheila Gunn Reid’s name is not on the sign-in sheet. Surely she signed in to the event before the “armed sheriffs” asked her to leave.

Oh yeah, she arrived 90 minutes late, too late to sign in.

SUZUKI AND EQUITERRE ARE BASICALLY ONE-IN-THE-SAME GROUP !

Equiterre and David Suzuki Foundation basically operate as one-in-the-same group. Equiterre is an anti-pesticide & environmental-fanatic organization that is VERY CLOSELY ALLIED with David Suzuki Foundation. According to observers, in 1992-1993, Equiterre was established as an ambassador and public policy shield organization for David Suzuki Foundation in the province of Quebec. Suzuki and Equiterre are basically one-in-the-same group that even operate out of the same location in Montreal. Where did Equiterre originate from ?!?! In 2001, when anti-pesticide prohibition in the town of Hudson was challenged before the Supreme Court of Canada, Ecojustice Canada provided legal counsel for Nature-Action Quebec ( an early version of Equiterre ), as well as Federation of Canadian Municipalities ( managed by some of the same fanatics who now run New Democratic Party of Canada ( NDP ) ), and World Wildlife Fund ( WWF, whose key members now manage Liberal Party of Canada ). Where is Equiterre located ?!?! Equiterre’s office is located in Montreal, in the Centre for Sustainable Development, which officially opened its doors on October 6th, 2011, and is home to eight environmental and social fanatical organizations, including Equiterre, and COINCIDENTALLY, David Suzuki Foundation. The Centre for Sustainable Development is collectively owned by the organizations that occupy the building, including the Quebec headquarters for the David Suzuki Foundation and Amnesty International. Equiterre and Suzuki own the same office building. They operate in tandem on several public policy issues. Quite often, their names are used interchangeably. They regularly issue media releases together in an attempt to deceive the public into believing that they are separate and distinct. Staff from both organizations work together, eat together, get drunk together, and perhaps even have intimate relations together. :-) In essence, Equiterre and Suzuki operate as one-in-the-same group.

We are the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that conspire to destroy the Green space and other industries ( NORAH G ). As a non-profit and independent organization, we are environmentalists who are dedicated to reporting about NON-EXPERT PESTICIDE-HATING FANATICS, as well as the work of RESPECTED and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS. http://wp.me/p1jq40-8DV Get the latest details at http://pesticidetruths.com/ WILLIAM H GATHERCOLE AND NORAH G

Evil, insane leaders at the helm of Alberta, Ontario and Ottawa. There’s got to be a way to get rid of them before there is nothing left of our provinces and Canada. What a crying shame, nutley’s next task is to install these useless, expensive, grotesque, birdkilling windmills so we can pay huge amount for our power and she doesn’t give a damn what she does to us. $90,000 IT WILL COST US TOMORROW ON TV FOR 15 MINUTES FOR THIS EVIL B’IS NUTLEY TO SPEW HER GREEN NON-ENERGY CRAP AND WASTE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF OUR HARD-EARNED MONEY. THIS WILL ACCOMPLISH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BUT RAPE US OF MORE OF OUR MONEY. She and her communist ndp co-horts will be benefiting from this scam.

I’ve never even HEARD of these “journalists”…..

So the Non-Democratic Party is Non-Democratic, go figure.

But we have what people in Alberta elected. And what the suburbs of Toronto elected Federally. Live with it.Hopefully there is something left to salvage in 2020.

At least Saskatchewan and B/C are on the right track. Imagine, premiers thinking they are elected to serve the people, not vice versa, stated by someone with mixed feelings about Clarke but she is looking for blackmail gain for her province and respect her for that. Our useless gov’t can’t even use site C to blackmail back.

Liza Rosie said, “This should be illegal.”

It probably is, but it takes mega money to challenge the government as they have deep pockets … our pockets from from which to fight a “forever and ever tied up in the courts” battle.

The only difference between the Rebel Journalists and the MSM Journalists is that The Rebel tells the truth.

Dumb individuals like Notley gain a little power and they think they are God. You will not win Ms Notley, Democracy will win. I am assuming that Notley knows what Democracy means.

I trust that the Rebel will fight back. I would not mind donating some cash toward the effort.
commented 2016-04-06 18:44:23 -0400
Big surprise. Rachel Notely is making a big mistake. She is such an obvious coward, a controlling dictator. This is an insult to a whole lot of people, since she’ll never run again I guess she doesn’t care. This should be illegal.

It is unfortunate that Global and CTV Edmonton do not have the balls or the guts to do some actual reporting on this mess we call the NDP government. I understand people have to tow the line at work and are worried about losing their jobs but it is their responsibility to report on this systematic and incremental destruction of the province by our own provincial and federal government. Call in W5 as this is exactly the type of story they should be drooling to work on. There must be a few retired reporters/journalists who will not lose their pension and can withstand the attack from their own people. Nope, not going to happen. No fucking guts. Old style journalism is dying off in favour of government mouth pieces that pump out daily bull shit to the dummies.
Thank you to Sheila, Holley and probably others at The Rebel for your efforts and reports. I should also mention Lorne Gunther at Sun News does provide articles on Notley and her gang of mistakenly elected idiots. Just one more thing. I’m damn mad and I’m not going to take it anymore (Network 1976). Good day to you all!

According to the basic rights this country was built on, any person who wishes to record publick occurrences and then broadcast those recordings, either as a hobby or as a livelihood, is a journalist. This is FREEDOM of speech. As far as speech is concerned, liberty is the paramount concern over all others. The idea of “journalist accreditation” is an obscene affront to our liberties and must be attacked at every opportunity.

Who does the accrediting? Because you know exactly who will weasel and bribe their way into the controlling majority on these accrediation boards. Liberals. They do it in any and every section of modern life where they see an opportunity to seize power and hold it permanently.

Look at what a disaster our judiciary has become because of this phenomenon. We cannot allow our speech to be regulated and registered in this fashion.

We rose against the registration of firearms and rightly so. This threat deserves the same response
