“I’ve never seen anything like it”: Justin Trudeau goes to Calgary — and meets 2,000 angry protesters

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


Calgary isn’t much of a protest city — Vancouver is, with all of its professional environmentalists; Toronto and Montreal are, just because of their size and their rich labour union front groups. But not Calgary. It’s too busy working to chant on the streets

Now, though, times have changed. I'll show you the video — 2,000 protesters. I’ve never seen that in Calgary before; the last time I’ve heard of so much anger in the city was actually the early 1980s, when Doug Christie’s Western Canada Concept separatist party filled the Jubilee Auditorium.

It wasn’t even a rally — it was a full-out protest, and it was boisterous. I’ve seen violent rallies before in my day — always from paid, professional protesters on the left, often Antifa, often with masks or their faces covered. Not these folks — they were severely normal Albertans who are just at the end of their ropes.

But Calgarians have a sense of humour, too, as you'll see from some of their protest signs...

Not a bad way to blow off steam.

But not according to the bought and paid for Trudeau media.

Here’s how the CBC covered it — "Trudeau and Nenshi hugged it out."

Is that really the big news from yesterday from Alberta? 2,000 angry unemployed men and women at a noisy protest — but two leftists hugging is the CBC’s lead story? Because of course it is.

And look at Mariam Ibrahim, a former Postmedia reporter, who went to work for a left-wing Alberta labour union.

She is furious at those protesters:

"That is a fucking noose hanging from a tree on that guy's sweatshirt."

I looked really closely, and there IS noose on there.

It might not be in good taste. But it’s a joke. Because not everyone who is unemployed can go to work for Rachel Notley’s union front group to make six figures. Some people need a real job. But that’s all the Media Party needed to discredit 2,000 unemployed men and women with a legitimate grievance.

TONIGHT I'll show you the Media Party's reaction to that one sweatshirt, from reporters at the National Post and the Globe and Mail.

So the real news is that 2,000 Calgarians had a peaceful but noisy protest against unemployment being foisted upon them. And the media reports were that Nenshi and Trudeau hugged it out, and that someone wearing a novelty shirt wanted to kill Trudeau obviously and he’s really, really scary!

This isn’t going to get better. Trudeau and Morneau and McKenna are just fine with things the way they are. No pipeline is going to be built. Alberta will get poorer still. 

Even when Notley loses next year, Trudeau will still block pipelines and tankers.

The only thing that’s changed in the past week is that Canada’s media is even more compromised, even more biased than ever.

This isn’t good...

NEXT: We hear a lot about how horrible Canada's residential schools were, and some of these criticisms may be legitimate. But what we don't hear is how many former students were actually grateful for this educational opportunity.

At The Rebel Live Calgary, I met a Rebel supporter named Gabe Desjardins. What he told me was so interesting, I've asked him to come on my show, to talk about his mother's experience in residential schools. It's a perspective you won't hear anywhere else.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Al Peterson,

…. Bernier has no chance this time around. Plus he really needs to work on his English. He is unbearable to listen to.

I have no problem listening to Benier and this comes form a born and bred Albertan. What is unbearable to listen to is Justin The Groper’s ups and ahhh and “very much” and “indeed”. As soon as I hear his nauseating voice I want to retch in a bucket.

Nicholas I know that the CBC gets 1.5 billion tax payer dollars and that the Rebel gets none. If that playing field was equal I know the CBC would run distant second. But I also know your Groper and pals will never do that and that Ezra would never accept it. I know that the MSM has sold their integrity and that hey are no longer Independent . Only a lunatic would think so.

Nicholas, I know your opinions are not empirical evidence.

Nicholas , I know how many German immigrants Canada let into the country during WWII.

Al Peterson,
Did you know that many CBC shows are on Netflix and Americans love them? Do you ever know what you are talking about?

Keith,

I agree with you about Trudeau, but…………

If the PPC looks like it is going to take a nose dive, then I will revert back to Scheer at the Polling Booth because I guess a bunch of false flag Conservatives are better than what the Trud has in store for us. The fact that Bernier has been blocked from the political debates is a good sign. Trud is worried.

Ezra would do well to give Max all the air time he needs, on the Rebel. Perhaps we should all send him a note saying the same thing.

Good point……and Justin has just reminded all of us of that very fact. The old Trudeau F.U. yet again. Albertan’s are starting to ask themselves some hard questions about this federation.

You have to admit though it was a damn good show of hands for a future movement. With Justin’s thumb on Alberta, that oil will never get to market.

Separatism is probably a no-go, for many reasons least of which being that the provinces hell-bent on pandering to the energy industry are both landlocked. Neither BC nor Manitoba would go with, and the US isn’t necessarily going to pay any more attention that Ottawa does, especially if/when Obama 2.0 gets elected.

Perhaps you’d consider proportional representation as a mechanism to get your voice heard (Trudeau’s greatest failure). It would be the end of 40% majorities, but you’d get a caucus that would be available for a New Brunswick or BC style balance-of-power coalition.

Robert Greeley, I wish you well, stay safe and watch your six.

My question is, was there a single person there that voted for Trudeau in 2015? I’m guessing few.

This protest does not make a lick of difference politically. The Libs have essentially nothing to lose in that province. They could lose every riding in Alberta and they’d go from an 86 seat lead to an 82 seat one.

Trudeau and Butts are just laughing at them. They have no intentions getting the pipelines built that Alberta needs. Like Trans Canada pipelines said. If C69 passes, no pipeline company in their right mind would propose building a pipeline. The only way to save Alberta is to get it out of the destructive tyranny it finds its self in.

Keep closing those comment sections CBC you wouldnt want to let other Canadians
to share opinions.

I’m sure Bernier’s “English” is improving by the day… Unlike the Boy Blunder’s, which seems to have been permanently damaged by too much pakalolo in his “diet”…

If Trudeau thinks he can come riding in, saddles blazing after he sets the house on fire with his snotty lackies, I’d pull them out by the roots. You don’t play that shit & get a clean slate. Its war in the west.

Al Peterson,

I do have problem with Trudeau, but Scheer doesn’t know what the fuck he is doing and just has a goofy grin all the time and Bernier has no chance this time around. Plus he really needs to work on his English. He is unbearable to listen to.

Al Peterson,

If the CBC has to fly on it’s own – they would just become a private company like CTV or Global. CBC does have advertising and it’s not like PBS – obviously companies do want to peddle their products to CBC viewers.

You are delusional if you think they would be done in a year considering the millions of people worldwide that take in CBC’s content in various formats.

Did you know that many CBC shows are on Netflix and Americans love them? Do you ever know what you are talking about?

After my Dad retired (he was a director of education) he was hired to consult with the bands taking over operations of a former residential school in west central Saskatchewan. he told me that their main concern was academic excellence…they wanted that school to be as good if not better than when they went to school there…

ROBERT GREELEY….your straight forward comments will be missed. Try to get back here before next summer as we need you to help get Trudeau out.

I appreciate your comment where you stood up for the" Toronto Star and the CBC." That opinion is a rare occurrence in this Country and proves that The Rebel is a well-balanced professional News Source for not closing the comment section.
