Liberals stonewall inquests into tweet congratulating Syrian regime

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Remember when Canada embarrassing environment minister congratulated Syria for signing on to the Paris agreement?

Catherine McKenna's official Environment Canada Twitter account tweeted:
Canada salutes Nicaragua and Syria for joining on to the Paris agreement. #GlobalClimateAction. #Cop23.

It was embarrassing and vile. Civilians are being bombed, gassed and disappeared by the Syrian government. But they're making a commitment to take the bus more often so they're getting kudos from a former human rights lawyer like Catherine McKenna.

To explain how Canada could send well wishes to a dictator, McKenna actually blamed her own staff, instead of taking responsibility herself.

But I don't think that was the whole story. I wanted to fact check Catherine McKenna the way the mainstream media would do for a conservative.

So we filed an access to information request with her Ministry.

We asked the government to provide copies of all documents including emails, text or instant messages, media lines, memos, approvals, calendars etc for the proposal, drafting, approval issuing and deletion of the tweet on Syria signing the Paris Accord on November 7th, 2017.

Pretty straightforward right? Should be easy. I mean it's just one tweet.

Apparently, it's not that easy. Normally the government has to provide this information to us within a 30-day time limit. But we just got a letter asking for a 150-day extension.

That brings the total time period up to 180 days - 6 months!- to get me information on one stupid tweet? Insane.

Sounds like they want me to quit looking which is only going to encourage me to keep digging.

But this is just another example of how shady and secretive the Liberal government is.

They cause us international embarrassment and they won't even allow us to find out how it happened for at least half a year.

Thanks Ron, maybe I’ll try the email route one last time…
…I pretty much figure I have the conservative version of the leftie’s ‘confirmation bias’ when it comes to me wanting to believe the reasonable explanations you’ve presented, for the likely cause of these apparent glitches…nor am I apologizing for that likely bias.

The whole lot of the trudeau’s staff and supporters should be exiled to Syria.

JERRY PASTERNAK commented: “Yep, Climate Barbie fits the bill. Does she come equipped with a pull string to spin off excuses?”

Interesting question. I hear the Bradford Exchange located in On-terrible sells a talking doll of Jihadi Justin stating “Diversity is our strength”. Gag! Choke!

I believe so too, especially when said spam attempt uses different user names posting the same link……….

Dan Mancuso—I had a few problems, but not that serious. I wrote to Eitan Gilboord and asked a few questions about the rules. He wrote back and pointed out that they don’t like things like; if I had called Climate Barbie an animal; they don’t approve of statements like that, where as If I called Jack The Ripper an animal, no problem.
Back to your problems, my expert neighbor says Sites like the Rebel have to pay for space, so they like to cram or jam things up to save space. Notice no indentations when you start a new paragraph. Often I notice the space after a coma is gone. Even I can’t make that many errors.
Eitan will fill you in.

RON JOSEPH;
I didn’t say ‘censored’, I don’t want to believe I was censored…at THEREBEL.
It started with taking out spaces and cramming the text together, then it proceeded to grammatical marks removed as well, now whole lines are going missing – AFTER I hit the POST YOUR COMMENT button!
I have to think it is a tech glitch – but being a technologically challenged, computer-retard how would I know…
Or, it could be some low lefty scum saboteur hacking in or otherwise trying to disrupt, confuse and discredit THEREBEL. Just look how bad the trolls get here, not to mention the Fake News Liars and the Liberals and other lefties.
All my computer stuff is recently new and well protected and it’s still happening so I assume it’s not from my end – but how would I know – I get no response from THEREBEL…it’s very disappointing.

The exact same criminal corrupt behavior exhibited by the Red Tent federally as provincially (ON). Information intentionally deleted, missing, stalled, blacked out on documents, but then again what the heck do we expect? IT IS THE EXACT SAME CORRUPT RED TENT WITH THE SAME BACK ROOM BOYS MERELY DIFFERENT JURISDICTION.

McKenna now says the Liberal’s federally imposed “pollution tax” will begin sometime in 2018. Rather than Jan 1, 2018 as originally conveyed. She claims she was"very clear" on that.

Notice when she speaks to the sheeple, McKenna who used to refer to carbon tax, it’s now a “pollution tax”? Why do you suppose she does that? She must have learned that form of Liberal speak while attending Scientific Behavioural Change Conferences brought to the sheeple by the WWF.

Using McKenna’s Liberal Logic, does that mean the legalization of pot is anytime in 2018, rather than July 1, 2018 as very clearly conveyed?

How dense must people be to believe this Environment Minister?
commented 2017-12-16 10:12:11 -0500
Now this may be a stretch, but could Climate Barbie possibly not like our beloved Sheila Gunn Reid?

What other reason could there be since Baby Doc Trudeau, Climate Barbie’s intellectual equal, promised that this will be the most transparent Canadian government we ever had. Providing information on something like this should be a snap, even if it should and will embarrass a lot of people in “The Inner Circle”.

Six months is a nice bit of time to get people to forget about the old blunder since there will probably be oh-so-more new ones along the road.

Miss Stephen Harper yet?

Better yet, miss Joe Clarke? Anyone else would be an improvement.

The Climate Barbie moniker has certainly stuck .So much so that I had trouble remembering her real name. I wonder what she did with the Barbie doll I shipped to her.

Oh wait, wait, wait… Silly me… It doesn’t snow in Ottawa any more, due to “Man Made Global Warming”?!?!?…

Oh Dear… Time for another “high heels” bicycle ride in the Ottawa snows?…

This Gov has now shown a pattern of refusal to Rebel media. I’d take that pattern to court. Not just to get all the info requested to-date, but to protect the future of the ATIA. It would undermine Trudeau’s efforts currently underway to alter it!!
commented 2017-12-15 19:52:01 -0500
Dan Mancusa—I don’t think you are being censored; if they let you say “This blond Bimbo AGW Barbie”, what could you say worse than that? (Unless we talk about Trudeau.)
As far as signing in too often, me too. I believe it is a result of the Dating Site pushing their business.

HEY! WTF’s going on down there REBEL!?
My comments are regularly changed after I hit the POST YOUR COMMENT button, making them unintelligible sometimes – see below for the latest example! Several lines were omitted!
I’ve emailed a couple of times about it – no response!
This is starting to piss me off. I’ve seen other commenters comment about similar problems – are you going to address this or continue to ignore it?
Like I said, WTF!?
And why do I have to keep signing in?
I shouldn’t have had to address this on the comments page!

What this ugly scandal has the appearance of, is;
  1. Climate Barbie, the Climate Bimbo made her first mistake by tweeting her lefty-eco-nut-tripe about Syria, and embarrassing Canadians even more than we already are by the rest of the Liberal Party retards and their antics.
  2. When caught at it she blames a subordinate, and makes herself look even more like a real loser and a really bad manager/minister.
  3. When journalists at THEREBEL.media ( SHEILA GUNN REID) uncover a possible and likely coverup of #1 and #2, the Climate Bimbo, Climate Barbie tries to cover that up too, while seemingly contravening the ATIA!
  4. The Liberals are all OK with all this, and the Fake News Liars are running interference for the LPC again, as usual.
    I say ‘likely coverup’ in #3 because this blond bimbo, AGW-Barbie has shown the world who and what she really is by her own scandalous and embarrassing behaviour at that Christopher Wilson media-question weirdness…and it was so bad that I heard that “The Streisand Effect” may be renamed, “The Climate Barbie Effect”!
    I’m almost feeling sorry for Climate Barbie McKenna for where this has to go…
    …almost.


I suspect that you are going to have success in your hunt SHEILA GUNN REID, have you given any consideration to how you may be mounting a trophy on the wall?

Sheila, you said it “shady and secretive”!
