Lawbreaking Greenpeace protester demands (and gets) apology after CBC reports truth

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

CBC was unusually fair and thorough in their coverage of two Edmonton based protestors who suspended themselves from Vancouver’s Ironworkers Memorial Bridge as part of a protest against the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.


In a rare act of journalism, CBC did their job digging into the ties that protestor Farid Iskandar, charged with mischief and jeopardizing the safety of a vessel, has to the mainstream left in Alberta.

CBC reported that his now deleted LinkedIn page noted he was employed as a social marketing coordinator with the City of Edmonton and he told them that he volunteered for Rachel Notley's electoral campaign in 2015.

However, Iskandar was upset that the article wasn’t adequately sympathetic to his radical worldview so he took to the internet to cry about it, tweeting:

@CBCEdmonton radio producer who called me yesterday to prepare for my radio interview this morning. I'm really disappointed that @CBCNews is taking their lead from trolls online, and are feeding the trolls with the content they want. Do better CBC.

Radical environmentalists playing the victim and shirking responsibility for their bad behaviour is nothing new, but what is new, at least for me, was revealed in the screenshot of an email Iskandar attached to the tweet.

Watch as I show you the unbelievable exchange that shows the sort of collusion that goes on in the background.

CBC is on the side of the criminals as long as they’re on the Left, and they’re actively tailoring their coverage to avoid hurting the feelings of those criminals.

When it comes to the state broadcaster, you just can’t believe anything they say or do. I think the apology is to show submission, in a twisted sort of way.

There’s a picture of this nut with Queen Nutley herself, check Sheila’s twitter feed.

What other country allows law breaking immigrants to stay in their country? Second class citizen? Buddy, its just your kind of lack of respect for our country, that makes Canadians outside your little bubble, wish there was no immigration. You ruin it for respectable people who want to be a part of this country because they respect it. You have zero respect, and if I had my way, your entitled ass would be on a plane back to Egypt. Try that sht in your own country. Second class citizen, what a joke.

CBC lol.

In an independent Alberta, these eco terrorists would be rounded up and severely dealt with.

I’m sorry, Sheila, but the story here is not that the CBC apologized for the article, but that they actually reported honestly in the first place.

The CBC National—what’s that?

Why is the CBC pandering to a GreenPeace eco-terrorist and race card player? Worried about his job after breaking the law, and, quite happy he can’t be deported under Trudeau’s ridiculous changes to the legislation.

Ariel needs her head examined for thinking an apology was in order and actually sending him one! It’s a strange, strange world.
