BREAKING: Trudeau Liberals lean on UN to block Rebel reporter from Poland Climate Change Conference

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The Liberals have asked the UN to block me from attending this year's UN Climate Change Conference in Poland. And, as you may know, they're dishing out over half a billion dollars to their favourite mainstream media organizations.

Under the new corporate welfare scheme, a panel of journalists appointed by the government will be doling out cash, grants and tax credits to “trusted” media sources.

The criteria to qualify for the bailout sounds a lot like the Chinese social credit scoring system except for journalism.

It's the end of the free press in Canada, except for The Rebel, and a handful of other principled news and commentary outlets. If you get your pay cheque from the government, you work for the government now. They own you.

But while Trudeau was busy championing the value of journalism to an international audience at a press freedom event in France last week, his government was leaning on the UN to censor me.

My accreditation application for the COP24 Conference in Katowice Poland was denied.

The reason?

“due to complaints about the organization from government delegates at COP22 concerning harassment.”

Harassment? That's a pretty serious accusation. In Canada harassment is a crime.

My crime wasn't harassment. My crime in the eyes of the United Nations and Canada’s Liberal government, was daring to ask a Canadian delegate at the 2016 conference in Morocco, a critical question that caused her to run away.

Apparently, my crime was journalism.

I've been banned from reporting inside COP24 at the behest of the Canadian government.

If a journalist asking a question is “harassment,” that should give us all some indication of the white glove treatment the Liberals are expecting from mainstream media journalists who are looking to become “trusted” media sources in order to qualify for Pravda-bucks.

I don't want Trudeau's bribes. I want the Liberals to get out of my way so I can do my job. If they think a ban will stop me, then they haven’t been paying attention.

Being banned is just another reason to go because it means there are things that will happen in Poland that they don’t want me to tell you about — stories they want left untold.

However, The Rebel won't be getting any of Trudeau's $600M media bailout and we wouldn't take it anyway. We'd never compromise ourselves that way.

And we don't get $1.5B of taxpayer money like the CBC. We’re crowdfunded by people like you who see value in what we do at The Rebel every day.

If you can help me go to Poland and tell the other side of the story the Canadian government tried to stop me from telling, please visit

Help us keep bringing you the news the government doesn't want you to know.

The Right in Canada is being systematically marginalized by Trudeau, starting with Christians being disqualified from receiving Summer Jobs Program grants when others were given them, and now this is the latest example of Trudeau’s war on not only the Right, not only Christians, but on freedom itself. Canadians, wake up and get him out! That means voting in each province for whichever party (CPC or PPC) is ahead during the runup to early voting time in each area. If we do that, we will elect enough rightwing MP’s
to form a conservative coalition that will put Canada back on track to freedom and prosperity, instead of the destructive freedom-hating, Canada-hating Trudeau agenda.

Nicholas Conklin the left is far more racist than the right. Try and wake up.

Nicholas Conklin WRONG! We are center right, it is the left that has moved farther away, the center does not follow the left around like you think.

The Trudeau dictatorship tightens the noose! Be careful.

Interesting article. Why not get some help from the Americans. After all, the American press backed Jim Acosta and his right to attend White House Briefings.

Should they not also defend journalists and their right to attend these events. As with Trump, surely they cannot bar journalists just because they don’t like the questions.

Try this out and see if the American press backs you. If they do, this will embarrass Trudeau. If not, this should be quite and embarrassment to their lofty claims about a free press.

If the Rebel is so insignificant why does it cost half a billion to counter the little engine that could? The rich kid peed his pants and now a letter has been sent home to all the parents. Do not laugh at Justine or your child will be suspended from class and cannot be trusted to return to school. We are now having a pee your pants day where all students will be expected to pee their pants to make the trust fund boy feel better.

SPACE MOOSE commented, “I have no money to give”.

But you can be counted upon to complain about some aspect of the Rebel’s operation.

Canadian Patriot,

You do realize that people here hate so called conservatives who are “center right”. They are viewed here as liberal lite. The Rebel represents the extreme right/alt right.

I would have no problem with a center right politician as they are typically socially liberal and fiscally conservative.

Stephen E,

The reason why it’s quoted in Parliament is because like Andrew Scheer’s view – they are acknowledging what a bigoted, racist and ignorant shit show The Rebel is and how it’s toxic for Canada. Not unlike the backlash against Faith Goldy for being a racist white supremacist. It’s calling something out for what it is.
commented 2018-11-23 06:37:46 -0500
Canada has given $2 billion dollars to help third world nations and the UN fight “climate change”, so the UN just listens to the hand that feeds it.

As for Nicholas Conklin’s trolling effort, if the Rebel is so unimportant, then why is it quoted in Parliament, referred to by the coward PM who actually runs from its questions, and has scored so many bullseyes the MSM eventually picks up on?

Andrew Scheer? The Weathervane politician who thinks what the MSM tells him to think? All the Conservative voters I know have said that with him in charge of the party they would rather stay home than vote for him. Scheer boycotting the Rebel; Its like Climate Barbie stamping her foot because the Rebel caught her being dumb – again.

Nicholas Conklin the weed the government is selling is garbage and their strongest brand is about average. Another Liberal Failure.

The left has to cheat because they are not qualified.

Nicholas Conklin if the other media is so great and doing so well then why do they need the handout money?? LMAO!

Life must be quite pathetic when you are an unthinking sheep.
commented 2018-11-23 05:30:04 -0500
Mindless people like Nicholas think blocking someone they call irrelevant is not a sign of fear.
commented 2018-11-23 05:28:32 -0500
Nicholas Conklin you voted for a dictator. You are as pathetic as he is. Now he owns the media and you are not saying s thing. You deserve to be subjugated.

Nicholas Conklin then why is the left so scared of them reporting? Now go mob Ron Fords

Yes Bruce I can see who the real chief was in this story. It is pretty humorous watching “Chief Running Chicken” being led around by his nose. I needed that laugh today!

Nicholas Conklin, as someone who has made it painfully obvious that they do not even comprehend the fundamentals of the political spectrum, do you really think you should be so quick to comment?

Far Left Wing = TOTAL Government.
Far Right Wing = NO Government.

Conservatism is CENTER-RIGHT. The Conservative government platform includes Constitutional Rights: individual freedoms, access to a free-market economy, private property rights, limited taxation, limited government accountable to the people, and a very generous welfare safety net guaranteed for citizens through taxation. Please present even ONE historical example of an “extreme right” political system. You can’t because it’s ideologically impossible to have “far right-wing” government.

Our entire MSM is now as pathetic and fake and corrupted as Mohammad Trudeau’s cheerleading squad the CBC
What a joke

The Rebel is NEVER going to be taken seriously as a media source or as “journalists”. Scheer wants nothing to do with The Rebel either.

Unfortunately Ezra made his bed and now he has to lie in it, which is also why co-founder Brian Lilly left. The Rebel represents the fringe and extreme right – a very small demographic.

Lefties always play fast and loose with definitions. Let that always be your starting place when dealing with them. Ask yourself, what do they mean by these terms? Because you can bet that they sound like the same words you are using but they don’t carry the same meaning.

Any “journalist” who works for any of the payola companies would resign if they had a shred of integrity.

If you were going to the UN Global Compact for Migration conference……

Billy, the UN is controlled by Muslim Countries it is a front for Islam.
Man made Climate Change is a money making scam used to con suckers into paying carbon tax and the like.
The world is warming up a bit, it is a natural phenomena, warming and cooling has been the norm throughout history.
