Contrasting “grassroots” campaigns: Foreign-funded Dogwood Initiative vs. The Rebel

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

The Dogwood Initiative are at it again— posing as a grassroots group opposed to big money while accepting huge sums from US-based foundations to oppose BC and Canada’s natural resource industry, and interfere in our elections

But this time, they’ve included a shot at The Rebel in their attempt to raise money.

Watch as I show you how Dogwood attacked us and also show you how small their grassroots support actually is.

After two weeks, they've managed just 200 supporters as compared to what we’ve done in our latest campaign at

Thanks to you, our true grassroots supporters, we've raised a lot since launching the crowdfunding campaign to create our free app on August 3, but we still need more help.

Unlike us, Dogwood have been hired by foreign donors including the Tides Foundation to attack Canadian jobs, while we’re independent Canadian media who call it like we see it.

They’re looking for funds to pay themselves but we’re crowdfunding an app to end our reliance on YouTube due to threats of censorship.

In their last email, Dogwood said:

“Organizations like Ezra Levant’s The Rebel are several years ahead”

That’s an interesting admission.

We’ve only been around since 2015 and Dogwood has been around since 1999. They had a full 16 years of cashing US foundation cheques before we even came along, yet we’re years ahead of them?

I guess all of that US foundation money just made Dogwood lazy and complacent.

Go get ‘em Wilson!
Yee Haw! Ride ’em (urban) cowboy.
Spur ’em out! Make that fur fly! Keep jabbin’ ’em with the truth!
Give ’em one for me…Ha ha ha ha ha.
The paradigm has shifted, the left WILL NOT prevail, because the truth will set us free – if only in hind sight.

Great report , and of course the self important Dogwood hypocrites cannot even defend their BS with a reasonable lie. They assume everyone is a mindless progressive that does as they are told.
I would find a pile of dog sh*t to be more useful than dogwood.

The difference is that The Rebel is providing a product for the money it receives. I am purchasing that product. The Rebel provides jobs while producing that product, and purchases capital. In short, The Rebel contributes to the economy.

On the other hand, groups like the Dogpatch initiative do not.

I wonder how many Canadian Tax dollars Dogwood is getting from Trudeau?
Seems they think alike.

Excellent report Christopher. Please continue to challenge the Soros puppet to a public debate.
Dogwood = Dog’s breakfast!

Excellent Christopher, expose Tides, I mean Dogwood for the hypocritical bunch of globalist recruits they really are. They are right about one thing though, the Rebel is years ahead of them and for good reason.

Now let me see, who could that anonymous contributor who is matching Dogwood’s pathetically small numbers be?
