Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government is co-sponsoring a conference in London, England today, with the UK government, about media freedom.
It would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad and Orwellian.
The Defend Media Freedom Conference claims 1,000 people will be there. And I’ll be one of them. And so will Sheila Gunn Reid (who has been personally blocked from attending UN conferences at the request of the Canadian government.)

I think our application to attend gave them a quandary:
They surely don’t want us there; but it would look quite odd for a media freedom conference to ban journalists!
Who else is there? Amal Clooney, George Clooney’s glamorous wife. There are a few other celebrities like her there. I think both the UK and Canadian government want to impress celebrities, the fancy people.
It's not easy to spot, but I dug around and learned that this whole conference is being sponsored by a billionaire media tycoon — a mini George Soros if you like — a leftist named Pierre Omidyar.
He made billions in Silicon Valley. Now he spends it on far left wing projects, like websites dedicated to attacking Donald Trump, like The Intercept and The Bulwark.
Omidyar is also up to his eyeballs with deciding who gets Justin Trudeau’s $600 million bail-out; His front group, called Luminate, actually chaired private meetings with Canadian journalist lobbyists on how to cut up the pie — and keep dastardly conservatives out of the money orgy.
But more to the point:
Omidyar is a big backer of censorship of “hate speech” as I'll tell you TONIGHT.
I recorded this monologue in Toronto. As soon as I was finished, I hopped on a plane to London, with Sheila Gunn Reid.
Then KEEP WATCHING for my thoughts on the conference so far, direct from London!
Thank you for supporting our reporting:
We wouldn't be able to take you inside this elite meeting of censors without your generosity!
