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

Rebel Staff

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!

I wouldn’t sugar coat that fella’s sweatshirt with the noose,there is a lot of Albertans that wouldn’t have a problem with that rat dancing on the end of a branch like a Christmas ornament-tis the season.

The anti-pipeline antics of our Dear Leader and Notley do not just damage Albertans they damage Canadian investors right across the country.

I wouldn’t consider hanging. I was thinking more along the lines of Mussolini.

So how come they are adverse to a gender analysis of Tommy Robinson’s Islam-bam-thank-you-mam-aphobia concerns?

Trudeau ,Father and son are cut from the same cloth. Both have a disdain for the west. But the younger has gone further than the elder dared to go,and that includes the running of the country. Never liked the elder but at least he was educated. Justin really is a high school grad only ,having dropped out of university twice

Why would Mohammad Trudeau even care ?
The feckless elitist trust fund baby brat is planning on replacing you all with third world Muslims anyways.
He works for the UN not Canada.

I am sick of natives using the residential schools as an excuse. Especially when they were not in it, but were descendant of the survivors. And why should we even call them survivors?
