We're making strange friends and allies at the Defend Media Freedom Conference, where after a miracle happened after Chrystia Freeland's staffer announced that only The Rebel and Andrew Lawton would not be allowed to attend a scrum.
Mainstream media journalists from outlets including the CBC, CTV, the Globe and Mail all refused to attend the event unless we were allowed, too.
These are people with whom we've disagreed, and they've criticized us in return. But the freedom of the press matters more than disagreements.
