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.

Trudeau bought the entire Canadian mainstream media for a mere $600 million. Proof that journalism in Canada is devoid of morals and principals. Nothing, zip, zero for our vets. I almost cried watching Michele Rempel announce on You Tube that this is the day freedom of speech died in Canada. God Bless and protect this bastion of truth; The Rebel

Trudeau is soon going to make Stalin look like the Sugar Plum Fairy. Why should the people of Canada fund his corrupt methods of being reelected. Is what he is doing legal? That is a lot of money to throw around, not that he cares, it’s our money. This excuse for a man is like a cancer slowly spreading through the body of what used to be Canada and Proud.

Now Sheila has come into his gun sights and he is going to put the Kabosh on her. Nothing like stacking the odds, eh Trudeau?

Pray for forgiveness Trudeau, prey very hard, you are going to need it.

Take them to court Sheila!!! Make big hay!! It’ll hit msm, and that’s where you really get them. It’ll be out in the open they DON’T believe in a Free Press and towing the line is expected. It can effect the next election. It can draw new viewers to Rebel.

Always seize opportunity to increase viewership. You do that by taking msm and the gov to task – in public! In other words, where more than your regular viewers will see you!

You’ve really upped your game this last year Sheila. Great work, Keep it up. But let’s make better use of it!!

If you were going to the UN Global Compact for Migration conference being held at the same time in Morocco, I would donate. The UNGCM will have far more effect on our lives than another climate change “groupthink” conference. Besides, the UNGCM also demands countries adhere to UN climate change agreements (including the Paris Accord and anything decided on at the COP24 in Poland).
MSM is basically going to ignore the UNGCM, so it would be a huge scoop if the Rebel were there to report while all the MSM is busy in Poland.

Trudeau bought himself a media to cover up the truth, peddle Marxist propaganda and go in the tank for the lieberal party to win the next election. Trudeau’s hero Fidel, would be impressed.

I loved your interview with Chief Running Chicken. Running from reporters shows just how those folks want to hide the truth.
