APTN journalist jeopardizes Rebel reporter's safety at Camp Cloud: Will CAJ call an inquiry?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

A journalist from another network jeopardized my safety when I was reporting on the Camp Cloud anti-pipeline protest occupation on Burnaby Mountain.

 

We went to cover the promised July 21st 6 a.m eviction of illegal squatters from the hovels and tents they’ve erected adjacent to a Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain facility in Burnaby’s Forest Grove neighbourhood.

The eviction deadline came and went without their removal, but the day was still eventful. When we arrived, we hopped a concrete barrier (erected to ensure protesters aren’t run over as they live and sleep in a ditch) to get a better look at the KM tank farm.

That led to a confrontation with a protestor who accused us of “trespassing” on their land. It was strange, but we diffused the situation that ended with a handshake.

Until a reporter from the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) named Justin Brake, came barrelling down the hill from the camp. Initially, I thought he was a protester, but then he shoved his cell phone in my face and started interrogating me, wanting to know who I was, who I worked for and why I would even think the camp was newsworthy.

Can you imagine someone with media asking why I thought Kinder Morgan was newsworthy? That was bizarre enough. However what happened next was unbelievable, as you’ll see.

I’ve already been assaulted at work by a left-wing male feminist at the Edmonton Women’s March in 2017. Dion Bews was charged and I sued him successfully in civil court.

That's why I have to have a bodyguard now, especially when I go to places like Camp Cloud, and we needed him every minute. I won’t be bullied or intimidated away from doing my job. Now now, not ever.

Brake’s boss at APTN is a woman named Karen Pugliese, and she's also the boss at the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ).

Pugliese wants to hold an inquiry into Rebel’s treatment of a Buzzfeed reporter named Scaatchi Khoul who attended our Rebel Live event this spring in Toronto. We did call her out for past remarks about Rebel viewers but her safety was never in question.

Unlike those at Camp Cloud, we’ve never been violent. We didn’t ask her to leave and in fact, hoped she would stay.

What will Pugliese do about her subordinate Justin Brake? Will she call for a CAJ inquiry into what he did to compromise my safety when he tried to rile up a proxy army of miscreant ditch sleepers to scare me off the mountain?

Or do I not count, one more time, because I am a conservative journalist?

Jerry Crossman…..Great Point. "It’s said that oil was destined to America how will Quebec get ther Saudi blood oil now ?? " Apparently Iran is attacking Tankers headed to North America.

Quebec didn’t want Alberta Oil, so if they can no longer get their favorite Saudi Oil, they can go back to Horse and Buggy that they use for tourists. It will be good to see Trudeau’s base walk!

Good on Sheila for going out in the field and taking risks! On the other hand, I’m flabbergasted that she played the ol’ Jason Bews video TWICE in a piece on another topic. Moreover, Sheila simply isn’t telling the whole truth about the Bews-gate. Bews was NOT found guilty of assault; but rather, of uttering threats which are undeniably audible on the video. He got a 3 month conditional discharge and 30 hours community service to be performed at his community garden where he already spent 7 hours a week. Sheila expressed outrage at verdict and sentence. In civil court she was awarded $3,500 for general and punitive damages. A smaller award I’ve never heard of. The judge deemed her alleged injuries “minor, indeed trivial” and her behaviour “abusive and disrespectful.” Compare that to her hysterical video about being “punched in the face.” Sheila is capable of good journalism sometimes. The above flick, however, is a self-indulgent, meandering, grasping waste of 9:14.

Amy Lynn, your comment, and yourself, are jokes, right? Tom, are you even awake? Have a cup of coffee, actually watch the video, and maybe try again.

Didn’t this troll “Bradley” come to the defense of Bews? Or was that Ocean or Stark or Lynn, he uses so many names as of late it is getting tedious to keep track of.

Question: is their camp on their property?

Cry me a river. The guy hardly shoved the camera in your face, he was standing 2-3 feet away. I didn’t see him interrogating you as you left that part out. I didn’t see anywhere in the video where you were actually in danger. Did your camera man forget to turn on the camera on? This whole video seemed like a total waste of time in my opinion.

Lefties are bullies and thugs. No other way of saying it………..

Amy Lynn – that’s not what the judge said that gave Sheila the win against that puff piece male feminist.

Amy Lynn, I see you are back to throw rocks again…Missed!
Had you taken the time to listen to Sheila’s report, I doubt you wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss what happened. Actually, you operate from a circular reasoning perspective, so, I guess I cannot assume you have the capacity for logical, critical thinking. My mistake!

You remind me of the slow boiling frog.

SGR is simply a “professional victim.”
commented 2018-07-26 16:00:03 -0400
APTN or CBC, makes no difference. They will put Rebel reporters in danger without a second thought. Rebel Media is in direct competition with the Trudeau MSM narrative and must be stopped. CAJ is just another arm of the PMO, so don’t look there for any help.
The govt warned yesterday about cracking down on “fake news”. The timing for the Rebel to be silenced may coincide with Justin coming off his “vacation”.

Well said Martin, You nailed it.
Lame brained Socialist Marxist low lives, to dumb to debate, they want to hammer you into the ground.
As for Trudeau, all he is good for is molesting little boys, he is a bloody Wanker.

Natives. The privileged people of Canada.
One law for them and a completely different law for everyone else, except for The feminist Trudeau’s people, the Muslims and illegal migrants, they have an even better law than the Natives.
Canada sure has fallen into a deep hole dug by the Liberals in order to shovel all of us real Canadians into so that we can shut the hell up.
Well I have news for Mr. Feminist Trudeau – you will have to kill me to shut up. I will always be that thorn in your side – you feminist two faced jerk.
