Lorne Gunter: CBC makes excuses for Liberals' Belgian visit gaffes

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, Edmonton Sun Senior Columnist Lorne Gunter joined me the Belgian state visit to Canada that turned into Justin Trudeau's latest international embarrassment.

What originally should've been a cordial meeting between two friendly nations turned into a series of unforced errors by the Trudeau government.

To begin with:

Trudeau wasn't even present to meet with the Belgian royals because he was in Florida on a family vacation. 

Later it was revealed that members of Trudeau's beloved public service had tied Canadian and GERMAN flags to a tree planted to commemorate the liberation of Belgium during World War One — gaffe that could've been avoided with a simple Google search.

WATCH my interview with Lorne to see how the CBC ran defense for Trudeau and why Stephen Harper would've never gotten away with this.

Sideshow Bob, you skipped over my question: What don’t you like about Sunny Ways?

Living in fear you say? No, and, I’m not asleep either. Many people predicted the problems with Trudeau, it take long after the election to be proven right.

Bob Rock not just Trudeau , the whole Liberal party has lots of corruption and hypocrisy.
commented 2018-03-16 01:08:40 -0400
Bob Rock i do not live in fear either , does not mean i do not see what is coming. Now go tell everyone the world is ending unless carbon taxes save it LMAO!

Bob Rock what Bullshit? We said how bad Justin would be and he is proving us right. And if you do not live in fear then why do you care if someone owns a gun?
commented 2018-03-16 01:06:47 -0400
Bob Rock sorry i do not take left wing hogwash as truth. LMAO!

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

Not true, but I also don’t care about the mostly bullshit things that The Rebel covers as part of their extreme right agenda.

I also don’t live in fear like you do, so I am not consumed with what you think is dooming Canada.

You are definitely amusing Bobby, thank you for the laugh. It appeared that you were headed over the edge yesterday, good to see you got back some of your composure, though your state of mind is still very questionable. You better keep your health up for what would we do for amusement without out pet troll? Stay healthy Sideshow Bobby.

Sideshow Bob, you consistently pop up to deflect any negative coverage of the gaffes re: Mindless Hairdo that is the PM. On the more serious stuff, you disappear. Eg. Khadr payout; the Khalistani terrorist invited to two events in India; Jihadists being welcomed back to Canada; Gerald Butts calling anyone who made fun of Trudeau’s “peoplekind” comment a Nazi; Trudeau’s Ethics violations etc…..

What don’t you like about Sunny Ways?
commented 2018-03-15 20:58:02 -0400

Wrong. Quite frankly, I don’t like Trudeau all that much, but clearly you are consumed with him.

“I see people like Bob Rock are fine when the Liberals crap on our closest ally and trading partner , even when an MP calls them Bastards. HYPOCRISY THY NAME IS LIBERAL. "

Spot on Drew. Little Bobby has such a hard on for Trudope that Trudope could never do any wrong no matter what the circumstance. Reminds me of the orange juice BS. Bev charges a $16 glass of orange juice and the left go spastic, then the Libtards get in power and charge WAY MORE, but any complaints? Nope nothing but crickets. Libtards are all lying hypocrites, it is a party member prerequisite.

Bob Rock google CBC LIES and enjoy the countless stories. LMAO!
commented 2018-03-15 18:28:26 -0400
Bob Rock nice bit of deflection , just like a left winger. I would prefer the US deal rather than have Justin sell us out to China and Islam.

Trump RULES while Justin Stammers.
commented 2018-03-15 18:22:09 -0400
According to the useful idiots Justin lying about India setting him up was nothing at all.
And Bob Rock – you do not speak for Canada.
commented 2018-03-15 18:20:02 -0400
Bob Rock you mean Trump claimed something without knowing it? Sort of like how the Liberals put up the wrong flag? IDIOTS! Just proves Justin did not know it and was played like a fiddle by a superior mind.
commented 2018-03-15 18:18:23 -0400
The CBC is beyond pathetic. The left are pathetic sheep.
commented 2018-03-15 18:16:53 -0400
Bob Rock actually he said he did not know if it was true moron. You should learn to read. And there are no countless lies because you or some BS website say so LMAO! Now go start a war with India LMAO!
Or you can call out CBC for their lies about the RCMP , Rob Ford, our troops. And Justin has broken the law 4 times, but of course you ignore that like a good pathetic sheep.

@Bob Rock….theREBEL does not receive 1.5 billion dollars in taxpayer funding under the false pretense of being non-partizan the way the cBC does. TheREBEL is voluntarily funded by like minded people and there is no pretense about playing to it’s audience…

The CBC has an editorial policy and coverage bias that follows a simple principle….NOT A TORY NOT A STORY

Incompetence is just the tip of the iceberg with the Ottawa Lieberals! What lies beneath the surface is disturbingly dangerous to Canadians!
commented 2018-03-15 16:16:30 -0400
Trudeau, Canada’s Captain Obvious was busy promising that Steel and Aluminum tariffs would never happen, duh, no kidding, we are not dumping and running a negative trade balance with the US, no threat here. In other news Trudeau, is traveling to Newfoundland on Friday promising that the sun will always come up there first as long as he is PM.
Anything to shake that India vacation.

CBC covers for this a**hole again!!!
commented 2018-03-15 16:06:25 -0400
Whataboutism by Bob strikes again!!!
commented 2018-03-15 16:04:42 -0400
It had to happen. Sooner or later someone would come along to make Joe Clark look competent.
commented 2018-03-15 16:04:31 -0400
No but it’s ok to let them carry the load on terrorism . Bob who the hell are you ?
