Canada and its allies have held air force exercises in Cold Lake, Alberta for 40 years. Trudeau just cancelled them.

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


Shocking news today. But I doubt it will get much press. Because the victims are the military, and Alberta — two things that the media party doesn’t really care for.

Every year, an air force training exercise called "Exercise Maple Flag" is held in Cold Lake, Alberta. Canadian pilots fly along with pilots from other NATO countries, especially our American allies, as well as non-NATO air forces, too, including places like Israel, Australia, New Zealand, even Singapore.

It’s not an air show. It’s as real as it gets. Obviously they don’t shoot each other down, but it’s not just a classroom simulation, or a flight simulator. It’s weeks long. They do air to air combat, air to ground combat. It’s probably the most important training a fighter pilot ever does. It's the key event for the Air Force.

And Cold Lake, Alberta is the perfect place for it. Mainly, because it’s huge. And also because of the landscape.

It's only been cancelled four times in forty years, when Canada has had a significant air force deployment overseas.

And Justin Trudeau just cancelled it — and not because we’re sending our air force off to war. But because he’s starved it of money.

Let me read from the Air Force’s press release:

The RCAF has decided to not conduct Exercise Maple Flag in 2019. The RCAF will use the opportunity to re-focus its resources to update the exercise’s mandate and to modernize the infrastructure used during the exercise. The RCAF will thereby ensure that Maple Flag remains focused and relevant to fighter operations in a dynamic and fluid battlespace, now and into the future.

Let me translate into English:

They don’t have the money or support. So they’re going to take a year off. Who knows, maybe more.

“Modernize the infrastructure used”. Perhaps it means that our fighter jets are so old that they can’t really integrate with our allies anymore. We’re flying CF-18s that we first acquired in 1983. Most pilots are younger than those planes.

The prime minister's luxury jet, on the other hand, is the one jet Trudeau will never scrimp on, will he?

Trudeau has given — just as a gift — a billion dollars to Bombardier. Not for air force jets, but to subsidize their corporate jets that they sell to foreign buyers.

Imagine if Trudeau gave the billion dollars, instead of to Bombardier, to our Canadian air force? 

This is devastating to the RCAF. It’s devastating for morale; to its capacity to do its job; devastating to our role within allied air forces.

And devastating to Alberta, home of Cold Lake, where these exercises have been important for the community. (If this event was held in Quebec, they’d back up the truck with money.)

I don’t want to be dramatic. But is there a name, is there a word, for someone who systematically destroys our military, disable our ability to fight, denudes our soldiers of their equipment; underpays them, and humiliates them — while given tens of millions of dollars to confessed, convicted terrorists?

Is there a word for someone who does that...?

NEXT: Sheila Gunn Reid is back with another update on her reporting from the UN climate change conference in Poland.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Yes, there is an answer to that question…TRAITOR! If the PC’s were actually the loyal opposition, they’d have arrested and charged the turd for treason and sedition long before now! Seeing that they haven’t means they are playing the same agenda cards!

Arrogant? Anti-military? POS? Traitor? Treasonist? Destroyer? Mangina? Any one of them will do. Turdeau is hell-bent on finishing the destruction of the military and the oil & gass industry that his father started.

Even little NZ silences its own renowned professors on matters of climate change. But there are voices speaking out. The Labour government in NZ (elected by only 36.9 % of the vote) thinks by reducing carbon emissions to zero in NZ they can save the world. Most of the electricity in NZ which is very expensive is already renewable energy but now the government wants to go after farming to reduce its carbon emissions. For some interesting reading see

- With the shutting down of “Exercise Maple Flag” we see Liberal corruption & incompetence in one package. Lots of money for foreign terrorists, foreign infrastructure, hack comedians – nothing for our country’s defense or the people who defend us.

- Countries like Poland are not buying the globalist agenda & aren’t facing constant terrorist attacks. Go figure. I hear Brazil has decided that they won’t be hosting COP25. Perhaps the world is starting to wake up to this climate scam. I would never trust media that’s in the UN’s good books. The migration pact was quite clear about rewarding & reprogramming compliant media.

On another note: please consider contributing to the go fund me defence of Admiral Mark Norman. The liberals are wrongfully trying to destroy this man and his amazing career in defence and service to the people of Canada.

You al just don’t understand the situation. The damned veterans and military are still asking for more than The Groper can give.

Huffington Post:
“It was interesting to read David Akin’s numbers on Trudeau’s dollar handouts in his first 100 days in office. By his calculations it amounts to $5.3 billion, of which slightly less than a billion dollars was spent inside Canada.”

Spencer Fernando:
“According to CIJ News, the Canadian Government gives away $10 billion in foreign aid every year. Even more money was just announced by the government, sending $119.25 million to Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen.

As part of that package alone, tens of millions of our taxpayer dollars will be sent to United Nations Agencies – including $81.6 million for the UN population fund.

Of the overall $10 billion, $2.65 billion goes towards “helping other countries deal with climate change.” So, not only is Justin Trudeau about to bring in a carbon tax in Canada, he’ll send some of that money out of the country to implement environmental policy overseas."

Toronto Sun:
“On Wednesday, the Trudeau government announced it would send $25 million taxpayer dollars to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), an organization that is supposed to provide relief and social services to Palestinian people. ":

The Star Business Journal:
MONTREAL—The federal government says it will provide $372.5 million in interest-free loans to Bombardier, a move that elicited criticism even though it is far less than the transportation giant originally sought more than a year ago.

etc, etc, etc

“I have been calling for a general strike for months now. General strike means all essential services,”

Good thought, but if your meaning of “essential services” is paramedics, fire, police, road crews, etc., it will never work, ZUZANA. They are all unionized and the union bosses are in love with champagne socialists like Notley and turdo la doo.

No, the kind of protest I’m thinking about will have to come from the grassroots private sector. People would have to emerge as leaders and get the balls rolling.

Good Show Ezra! In regards to the Military/Airforce, this comes as no surprise to me. Definitely concerning is the agenda behind this. The reduction in military spending, the negation of the military is not new. Since Old Pierre the Socialist Dilettante, successive Governments of all stripes have in their own way contributed to the contributed to the present mindset( Public and Government), that having an up to date Military is counter to their socialist agenda.
commented 2018-12-13 11:09:34 -0500
JAMIE MACMASTER you nailed it. I have been calling for a general strike for months now. General strike means all essential services, during the week to cause as much disruption as possible. That is the only way we can get attention from the government and their minion press.

In regard to the first segment of your show today Ezra, on Jihadi-Justin-Groper’s treacherous and continuing destruction of Canada and Canadians. You end your monologue with: “…there is a name for such a person.”
Yes, and that name is TRAITOR!
I’ve been calling Jihadi-Justin-Groper a traitor for a couple of years now…too bad we don’t have a free press – they’re all bought and paid for whores of the left – or an opposition – let alone a loyal one…Oh Canada.

Everything liberals stand for, or are against, is the opposite of what the people want in a free democracy. All of their actions are against the people. They hate individual thought and freedom. They believe the world is their oyster, and that everything you have belongs to them, even your thoughts and beliefs, and how you express your individuality. How wrong could they possibly be! God created each one of us in his image, and he gave us free will to decide for ourselves whom to believe. Things are getting worse by the day, as they attack the pillars of democracy, and law and order, but keep the faith, and we will see what happens to those globalist loons, who seek to hide and create their own version of truth and reality, as they try to force the submission of all people for the devil’s cult. I know whom I believe, and I’m watching as His plan is played out on the world stage. These loons think they are in control, but they believe in their own lies, to their own detriment. Don’t forget that David slew Goliath with a slingshot and a rock! Their house of cards is a trap of their own making, and rest assured that it will be brought down on them. And when the dust settles, the truth will be left standing!

“there is another protest in Edmonton on Saturday Dec15th at 2pm ….”

Then, it will be doomed to the same lack of coverage as all Saturday protests.

For a protest to have any impact, it has to make headlines. To make headlines it has to (a) happen during the week, and (b) cause significant disruption.

Good job Ezra, Sheila and David!

Please consider asking Sheila to hire a polish interpreter and interview people on the street and shop keepers on their thoughts. My sense is that after Nazism and Communism, the Poles demand sovereignty.

The Liberal stunt at Cold Lake is a shot across the bow to Albertans … submit to a Carbon Tax or else …

Bring it on I say.

I don’t know when it became official, perhaps in October of 2015 or at some later point but we now live under a dictator here in Canada. One of the most salient demonstrations of his dictatorship are the blank stairs of liberal MP’s in the House of Commons as the dictator spews his mindless talking points during Question Period. I believe the Quebecois dictator is worse than Macron in France because I believe he is mentally unstable and is evil at a base level. However to begin winning back this country we have to protest. Find out where your nearest protest rally is and attend…..this will be the major way to unseat this dictator. I understand there are some migration pact protests happening this weekend (Dec 15th).

Canada doesn’t need a military because we are “post-national” i.e., not a country.
