REVEALED: Trudeau's plan to monitor “truth” in election-year news

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I reported on Justin Trudeau's plan to "monitor election-year reporting and expose coverage considered inaccurate."

This plan was made public thanks to a scoop by a small independent outlet called Blacklocks, which appears to be one of the only outlets in Canada that won't accept funding from Trudeau's $595 million media slush fund.

The story should be on the front page of the Toronto Star, the Globe and Mail, the National Post, and leading the nightly news on the CBC, CTV and Global.

But it will become immediately obvious why that isn’t the case:

Fed Consultant To Monitor Media, “Expose” Coverage

The Department of Canadian Heritage is reviewing a proposal to monitor truth in election-year reporting and “expose” coverage considered inaccurate. The initiative follows a Liberal cabinet plan to subsidize newsrooms it deems trustworthy. Elections Canada already enforces a statutory ban on campaign falsehoods.

Department staff yesterday confirmed the Public Policy Forum, an Ottawa-based group, applied for cash grants for a so-called Digital Democracy Project. The value of the grant was not disclosed. “The application is under assessment and no decision has been made yet,” the department said in a statement."

Hang on. Isn’t deciding which campaign promises you can trust and which you can’t, deciding which news reports and editorials you should listen to and which you should ignore — isn’t that the job of the voter?

Isn't it suspicious that Trudeau announced his $595 million media bailout a week before this plan was exposed?

I have to use availed speech, because I am living there, but check out what has been, and is going on in the land of smile over the past 4 years. Compare it to this plan to monitor or next election.

Listen to them tell us in their own words that they are going to make anti migration speech hate speech, and illegal. This is m 103 on steroids!

A True Dictator. I can still remember the media calling Harper that.

I’m still annoyed that after all of the so called investigations that when I post a story form the Rebel or breitbart I get these information indications"The Rebel Media is a Canadian far-right online political and social commentary media website. It was founded in February 2015 by former Sun News Network personalities Ezra Levant and Brian Lilley. It has been described as a “global platform” for the anti-Muslim ideology, also known as counter-jihad"

Man oh man! Just wait till our MSM hears about this!

You know, the whores he just bought off.

Justin is a fascist. Even his father wasn’t a fascist. His insatiable appetite for power and control is very unbecoming in a western leader. This may not end well for us, but it won’t end well for him or his nasty cabal of elitists either. He will fall, its just a matter of time. In the meantime the fight to get the full story out to the general public is not going to be easy.
—listen to Justin call himself president instead of Prime Minister. Putz.

How long before he just buys all the media and GM like he did the pipeline?

When I was but a waif we were told it was the job of the media to determine if the government and the politicians were lying. Now we are supposed to have the government determine if the media is lying. A pox on both their houses. Both have sold their souls to each other.

I agree, Billy, what has “Heritage” got to do with it? Besides our heritage of truth walked out the door the day Groper Sox got voted in.

It’s all about maintaining control of the masses, while the globalists work to destroy the planet.

Why don’t they just change the name of the Department of Canadian Heritage to the “Ministry of Truth” since its Orwellian direction is pretty clear.

So the son of the Father of Lies is going to determine what is truth?

“Professing to be wise, they became fools..they exchanged the truth of God for a lie…”
