"This is fascism, Soviet-style": Foreign-funded Ecojustice wants climate change "deniers" silenced "for 10 years"

Rebel Staff

A U.S.-funded group of environmentalist lawyers in Canada called EcoJustice has filed a complaint with the Competition Bureau demanding they investigate people who are skeptical of the theory of manmade global warming.

What on earth does the Competition Bureau have to say about whether people can disagree about global warming?

What kind of authoritarian bullies run to the government to try to get their opponents censored?

Look who they're going after:

Some home-made style billboards put up by the group Friends of Science. Just a few old-timers in Calgary, some engineers, scientists, professors.

They put up some billboards with some very simple messages. Like “The Sun is the main driver of climate change" and "Climate change your mind."

That’s what EcoJustice is after: A few low-budget billboards.

In their complaint, they say:

"Either a finding of criminal guilt or reviewable conduct would demonstrate that climate science misrepresentations are contrary to law and harmful.”

This isn’t just that crackpot David Suzuki. He’s always demanding people be thrown in jail. This is Ecojustice, a leftist law firm.

They claim to be acting in the name of six complainants, including Stephen Lewis, the socialist millionaire, former diplomat, father of socialist Avi Lewis and father in law of Naomi Klein.

EcoJustice is also a registered CRA charity.

They launder their political attack money through a charitable number. $5.8 million of it last year.

Could you imagine if anyone tried to sue David Suzuki into silence?

Folks, this is post-normal science: science where facts are uncertain, values are in dispute, stakes are high, and decisions are urgent.

Mr Ezra! I respect you as a man and journalist,I even agree with you on so many point of view,but please do not use words you do not complaisantly understand like: “This is fascism, Soviet-style”. Sorry to say,but living 30 years in a socialist country I did not experienced this much BS than here now. There at least the government pretended that you have a say .

Barb Harris – good job! It feels good to state the truth to these idiots. I’m sick to death of hearing all the lies and garbage they are constantly pumping out, to control us. Freedom has a price, and I’d rather die fighting for freedom, than turn over, like these cowardly lawfare creeps would force us to do.

The science is settled.
Man-made-global-warming is a hoax, it’s BS, it’s part of an evil agenda.
Anybody who still believes in or spouts this crap is insane – or they have an agenda…
These people are dangerous and we need to round them all up, put the nut-cases in a nut house and the criminals in jail.
Let’s start with an investigation into Ecojustice and each individual in that organization, then their families, extended families and friends. We’ll have to hire more law enforcement personnel, a lot more and build more jails, a lot more jails.
It’s for the children…

With the battle to stop “run away climate change” now fully addressed and in the Liberals cross hairs, they have decided to move onto some other pressing and ignored issued that this world faces. Next on the agenda for Canada, stopping the annual dangerous practice of an unlicensed and difficult to track aircraft that has plagued the planet for over a century. Trudeau has been quoted as saying, “Santa Claus is an irresponsible and dangerous person, putting the whole world at risk by not complying with aviation regulations that protect everyone. Like man made climate change, this issue is our top priority”. Officials and those in the inner circle of the Liberal Party applauded this bold move by the PM, and vowed their total support. Comments from the official opposition Conservatives were limited to snickers and tear filled belly laughs. Clearly the Conservatives do not take these issue seriously.

Deborah – I agree! Crazy white woman rant ahead. This is what I just wrote to them. I was actually surprised they had a ‘contact us’ button.
“I just heard that you want to silence anyone who questions Climate Change. I don’t question Climate Change. It happens continually. I sure do question the assertion that we in the West can throw billions of dollars at the supposed problem and ‘fix’ anything. I question that climate change is a bad thing. I question your motives. Either you are really stupid people, or you’ve figured out how to cash in on those billions.

I’m a Canadian. I question the whole big scam called ‘Climate Change’ and if you want to come after me – bring it on. Here is what I have to say to all of you who have been duped or are on the take.

‘Screw all of you AND the horses you rode in on!’ I’m sick of being told I have no right to an opinion on this and I’m sick of you.’ "

Because their OPEC sponsors pay them to attack OPEC’s competitors. China is an importer of oil, not an exporter.

«Ecojustice wants climate change “deniers” silenced “for 10 years”»

Considering that the NASA satellites have been “denying” that there has been any warming in nearly 20 years despite an exponentially increasing CO2 level, does that mean they will be turned off?

Bravo Zulu – I just wish I was about 30-years younger! But if the get me angry, the years just seem to melt away! My daughter recently received her gun licence, and I told her not to ever turn in her guns to the government, under any circumstance, and to stock up on ammo!

Carbia law is coming. Seriously these fanatics need the living you know what beat out of them. And no stories in the media party circles, if this was some right leaning cause , say accept Christ or go to jail , they would be having a cow and this would be the ultimate hate crime and story of the year. But since it is what they want , they stay silent.

Dear Diary;
That sweetheart, Catherine McKenna, is really impressing me. She’s the climate-warming enviro-gal that married Scott Gilmore, the conservative who suddenly voted liberal. Anyway, instead of being on the job here she’s got herself an additional little gig in Paris, moonlighting as an assistant to France’s Foreign Affairs Minister. She’ll still be on Canada’s clock for everything, but now she can submit a duplicate claim for expenses to the French. I love double dipping. Who said I don’t know how to pick a winner? That’s my girl Catherine, make us Liberals proud. You go girl.
Wait a minute. She’ll be obediently serving a minister, in France, who has affairs with foreigners? Gerald . . . GERALD . . . After Gerald set me straight he said he’d disabused me. Oh I love it when Gerald talks dirty.
I mentioned before about not mentioning things in the speech from my throne. One of my unmentionables was that pesky TFSA limit that seniors like so much, but who cares about them? It was so easy for Morneau to surreptitiously slip that one in on Monday that the limit is getting reduced from $10,000 to $5,500. I don’t think anyone even noticed. It’s for a good cause though; to have seniors pay for that tax cut for the wealthiest middle class (thanks a lot Stevie) in the world.

Yes, it is getting quite sickening to continuous “chants” of GW / CC and yet there seems be be little political discussion of volcanic or solar influence in our weather. David Suzuki, Al Gore and Strong should be charged with fraud and so should our politicians. If any one of us “commoners” where to involve ourselves in such public deception we would be in court for it. Bring it on Ecojustice – the truth will endure!!

That 1st Amendment…funny how that one line gets in the way of a progressive’s totalitarian ambitions. There’s a tyrant inside every eco-freak.

It’s interesting that Trump has managed to win the high ground regardless of how much he is attacked. It establishes that he is, either, very brave, he truly speaks for the people, and the leadership in America is not trusted. Trump has emerged as a man of the people.

Lawyers are the lowest scum of all (except for Ezra!), and they will crawl on their bloated egos, over burning coals to fill their pockets. I was told by a lawyer once, that their rates are so high to keep people out of court. And my response was, that I guess then that that will include all low income earners, who will never receive any type of justice because of your criminal rates.

These kind of groups need to be met with massive law suits for attempting to infringe on our right to free speech and right to scientific inquiry. I do laugh at how people often claim the religious extremists of trying to prevent science from being done and there is some truth to that but given the opportunity we find that others can misuse science or try to prevent it from being done with more draconian measures than any religious group. Science is about asking questions. arguing theories, proving your ideas but if global warming is true how can we know for sure if there is no way to disprove it. Scientific theories must be testable and make falsifiable predictions but if you do not allow it to be tested it cannot be considered a scientific theory.

We have heard green is the new red but perhaps this is will be a new theocracy? I’m sure Ecojustice admires the “basic simplicity” of an Islamic justice system and plan to introduce Ecosharia.

This is so loony at first you might thing it’s a false flag tactic initiated by the denier side. Sadly it’s not. Eco extremists should be smart enough to know that this type of thing does not help their cause.

Malthusian fascism goose-steps onward to the police state carrying a green banner. These science quacks are more creepy than funny. “Believe in the sun revolves around the earth which is the center of the universe or we burn you at the stake as a heretic” These climate nazis would have put Copernicus in a Gulag. Good to see unchallenged progressivism has regressed us back to the inquisition.

I just spoke to my husband who is in Shanghai right now and he said the pollution is so bad his lungs hurt…
3 years ago I was in Beijing and the pollution was so bad that my eyes burned and I developed a cough.
Q. Why don’t these Eco-Nuts pool their money and finance scrubbers on China’s coal stacks.
A. There’s no money in it…
