Rebel viewers may recall our story about a junior bureaucrat at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency who sent an unauthorized memo to provincial liquor boards, indicating that it was unacceptable to stock Israeli wines.
It was all politically-driven garbage of course, and once the story hit the news, CFIA quickly withdrew its ludicrous order.
But The Rebel wanted to know who exactly was responsible for this fiasco — and find out if rumours were true:
That the CFIA bureaucrat who carried out this anti-Israeli act was a member of the Green Party, were true.
To that end, we submitted a Freedom of Information request.
Once again, Justin Trudeau’s pledge about open and transparent government has bitten the dust.
The only thing that’s transparent here is that the CFIA, by ragging the puck for two years, is clearly going to bat for someone with an anti-Semitic axe to grind.
This agency doesn’t regret its embrace of the BDS agenda, only that this attempted ban of Israeli wines was exposed in the media.
We’ll uncover the person or persons responsible for this scandal eventually but unless a whistleblower steps forth, we won’t be able to deliver the goods until the fall of 2019.
