Toronto Star hails McKenna as top “business” leader — while she helps destroy Canada’s economy (Guest host: Sheila Gunn Reid)

(Sheila Gunn Reid guest hosts for Ezra Levant, who returns tomorrow night...)

Recently, the United Nations released a report that singled out to Canada as one of the G20 countries on track to miss its emissions goals for 2020 and 2030.

To meet those emissions targets, it would require a purposeful stagnation of the Canadian economy.

The UN report says as much:

“Canada which represented 1.6% of global emissions in 2016 is one of the six G20 countries that short of enduring a low growth economics scenario will likely miss its 2020 Target of reducing emissions to 17% below the 2005 level.”

The Liberals know that. And they're willing to do it.

Take a look at Alberta...

By the UN’s own measure, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna's been a failure.

But how does she get treated in the media? Like some sort of Messianic character who's going to save us all from our oil addicted selves.

A couple of days ago, the Toronto Star named her as their number one “person to watch in business in 2019.”

McKenna is a job killer who can't even manage to parlay that into the environmental success story the UN says massive job losses should be.

But she's got the media on her side, and $600 million in a media bailout buys you a lot of spin...

NEXT: When I was covering the UN climate change conference in Poland, I made a new friend: Alex Newman of the New American magazine. 

Tonight he joins me to talk about the totalitarian nature of the "green" movement.

“…What would you recommend we do, Don(sic)?”
Yes well that is the $64,000.00 question…
Short of revolution – like what may have started in France and is spreading to the rest of the Western world – I don’t know what to do – that won’t get me arrested…or worse.
The Fake News Media Party is saying the RCMP are taking threats against the PM very seriously, since the people of Calgary didn’t give Jihadi-Justin-Groper a warm and fuzzy welcome…
So our avenues of protest and complaint are being narrowed…into a corner.
Revolution may come and take care of the problem…but that still leaves, ‘So what can we actually do?’

Good show Sheila! You talked about the Rockefeller Foundation! You may want to explore the Machinations of the Trudeau Foundation!

Dan Mancuso asked, “So WHAT can we actually do…”


- petitioning,
- writing letters to your MP/MPP,
- protesting,
- posting nasty comments on the Internet,
- voting for politicians that can change it for the better,
- running billboard signs,
- volunteering to work with your favourite political party,
- donating your money to your favourite political cause,

does not work, then there is little else left but revolution, something I prefer not to contemplate.

What would you recommend we do, Don?

If we stopped interfering in other countries, either by helping them or making them flee, kept our borders secure and returned to rational immigration policy, the world population would moderate itself the way it always has for centuries.

I say more western babies are needed to counter the prolific third world we are hell bent on having overtake us. Climate Barbie knows that there is no climate crisis, and that it is the least of our problems. Its all a distraction and a vehicle for the ‘social’ change (read control) they are determined to implement on western societies. That sort of communistic control has never ended well.

Boy that interview with Alex Newman was an eye-opener!
Upon reflection I came to some realizations.
All the AGW nonsense being trotted out for the citizen-supporters of the Globalists, is such an obvious, blatant, and easily provable lie, one can draw only one conclusion about this demographic of lefty/progressive/Marxists…they don’t want to know the truth because they are insane! Well, is there another reasonable explanation?
Seriously, how far along the road of irrationality, delusion, hysteria and self destruction must these lefties tread before they self destruct all of us…under their master’s guidance?
These fools are a small minority, as are the elite, building their totalitarian global fascism on our backs – who only need a small minority of ‘supporters’ to pull off their globalist takeover scam…why don’t we as a huge majority…just step on them?
I guess we don’t because we are a moral, intelligent and informed demographic who ISN’T insane!
So what are we going to do? Hunker down with our noses still at the grindstone, safe and secure in our moral superiority, and have that globalist juggernaut just continue to roll over us?
Or should we throw out that rule book and fight back…down and dirty?!
Ranting and raving on the internet doesn’t seem to be working, at all!
The modern ‘voting’ process seems to be working against us!

So WHAT can we actually do…

Keep in mind the source. It is the Red Star. They should change their name to the Marxist/Leninist Daily Strident. Nobody would notice the difference.

This interview should be required viewing by everyone, especially the youth who suffer under far-left climate change indoctrination in our public schools.

Not only do we have to rid our country of this infestation of Marxists, but we seriously need to take back the education of our children, and teach them what these evil monsters have done to humanity through out history.

Its simply amazing how a $595 million dollar carrot can make supposedly morel people into lying, pandering fools.

The arctic icecap is still there, the earth’s atmosphere hasn’t caught fire, polar bears are breeding like mad, Fiji hasn’t been drowned by rising oceans, and neither has New York. One side of Antarctica has lost ice, but the other side has more than compensated for the loss. Al Gore and friends are still flying all the time, driving in multi-car cavalcades without fear of murdering the planet, and still telling us how to live. And Climate Barbie, sadly, is still the “dumb blonde” joke of Canada.

Re: Sheila’s epilogue and the Access to Information documents.

Rebel Media is the only news & commentary site that I have seen that posts for all to read the Access to Information documents they receive from the government.

Rebel Media not only speaks the truth, they post the proof from where they get the information.

Yet there still are people who claim they make it all up. That is because many on the left and even several on the right cannot handle the truth.

To Sheila and all the Rebel team I greatly appreciate the work you do.

I hope you continue to grow and become an even bigger thorn in the side of those who wish to destroy our country, not just the Liberals and NDP but those Conservatives who pretend to be Conservative but in fact are not.

The destruction of Canada’s business opportunities has already begun, especially in the energy sector. One only need look at the energy sector in the US to see what “might have been”. Perhaps this year’s goal for Trudeau will be equal gender quotas in gas and oil industries like in parliament. On a lighter note I hope Erza is having a well deserved break and look forward to watching him fight for our freedoms in the New Year.

The BIG news re: AGW economics, is that
The effect of this warming will be 2-4% of world GDP by year 2100. World GDP is expected to grow 400% to 500% during this time. According to William Nordhouse, the winner of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Climate Economics.

Paul McCullough come on now be fair ,she is very adept at spouting garbage i would imagine she would be good at handling it as well.

At this rate the MSM is going to make The Onion obsolete as they have more ludicrous stories.

‘1992, I read my first “New American Magazine”. The owner said “keep it” & I subscribed for the next 20 plus years. Retirement & the move back to Canada caused me to drop my subscription but I still follow them online. ’Best Magazine in Print’! !
Looking Good Sheila & when are you gonna Bedazzle us again in your Makeup’?

Sheila remove your interview with Newman from behind the paywall.
