I’m fine with most of the trips if they are relevant, but a tweet from Trump doesn’t justify a week or so long trip in my opinion, and that seems to be the only reason for the trip. but to each their own. I donate , but not to everything.
The trips abroad help advertise for the Rebel. I think they are helping to make the Rebel more known, good for business.

Interesting that Jessica can converse with the locals in English. She couldn’t do that in Quebec.

I am beginning to think there are too many frivolous trips, and wondering if I should continue donating money to Rebel. Greenland, Philippines, Europe, England trips that really have little to do with Canada, and the topic could just be reported on locally or other contacts. You always asking for money, yet I feel it is been waisted, please review your spending.

There will be plenty of Rebel reporters covering the election so stick with this story until you felt you’ve finished. It might remind some citiots about what Canada’s forgotten.

In my family for instance, we shot .22s with Dad when we were 5, and by 10 had shot enough he felt we were safe enough with firearms we got our first .22.

And there were NO shooting accidents.

I just talked to a very conservative kid (Actually in his early 20s and he owns a rifle.) and he didn’t even know what a rifle rack was. He was FLABBERGASTED people used to drive around with rifle hanging in truck windows.

I have to agree Ron.

A ‘fascinating’ series that could be covered by a travel magazine or National Geographic. We have a highly important election in Canada starting tomorrow and you are in Greenland covering a travelogue story. Couple that with the Rebel begging for money to cover the election. Bad optics.

Ignore the grumblers, Jessica. This has been a fascinating series. Canada’s north could take a page or two from Greenland, methinks.

Greenlandic lifestyle is back to the basics.
It would have been interesting to know their views on all the gun laws that are being imposed and suggested in different countries. Especially when they are so dependent on guns for their livelihood and take it for granted that children will naturally graduate to using them.
I’d have to eat fish if I lived there. Arctic char?

Can you get back to Canada and cover the election. We’re not National Geographic.

How children learn to hunt and fish? Seriously?

That’s a little weak for a news hook, don’t you think?
