Canada’s largest journalism union announces it will campaign against the Conservative Party

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Maclean’s isn’t really a thing anymore — they used to be published weekly, now they barely publish once a month, most of its staff has been let go, and Rogers has put it up for sale.

But recently they put out an issue with a front cover that got lots of attention.

It pictured Andrew Scheer, the federal Conservative Party leader; Jason Kenney, the Alberta opposition leader who will probably be premier next year; and premiers Doug Ford of Ontario, Brian Pallister of Manitoba and Scott Moe of Saskatchewan. They’re against the carbon tax.

And in big letters: "The Resistance."

A lot of people mocked that Maclean's cover, and that pose. It became a meme.

And one of those memes was made by a big union called Unifor. 

It shows Jerry Dias, the president of Unifor in the middle. And you can see the caption:

Welcome to Andrew Scheer’s worst nightmare.

Not a lot of doubt about whose side this union is on. They will surely register as a third-party campaign group in the upcoming election — to re-elect Trudeau. (You’ll recall that Jerry Dias was part of Trudeau’s disastrous advisory committee on the NAFTA deal.)

Unifor represents thousands of Canadian journalists. 

Tonight I'll list all the newspapers and TV news stations that are unionized by Unifor. It's basically... everybody.

So essentially, the reporters at the Globe and Mail and CTV and the Toronto Star are going to war with some of the people they claim they’re reporting on neutrally (the Conservatives) and they’re going to war on behalf of some of the people they claim they’re reporting on neutrally (the Liberals).

Can you show me a journalist anywhere in Canada who is actually doing anything about this Unifor meme? Moving a motion to vote against this? Even starting a new, politically non-partisan union of political journalists?

No, don’t be silly.

You always suspected you couldn’t trust the mainstream media.

Now you have proof...

NEXT: Jack Buckby has been reporting on the ever changing Brexit story in the UK. Tonight he joins me to talk about Theresa May's future.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

I want Le Pen to win over him……
I’ll second that.

Keith Barnes-
I wrote about Merkel being the power behind the throne because the power of the EU is in Germany.
I wish Macron luck. Bad luck ;) I want Le Pen to win over him.

Karen, I do not know what gives you the impression that I hate Germany, I don’t. In fact I had a very happy time their. Being in the REME I spent my time in workshops along with a large population of German civilian workers. We spent a lot of time knocking back beers together in Das Guesten Housen, (Pubs).
No, I do not hate Germany, my memories are all Fond.
Merkel is yesterdays woman, about to retire. Macron is all set to become the new Furor of Europe including the UK.

Keith Barnes-
I’m sorry for the savagery of Hitler. He did not represent the German people. Their elites (if they ever make it there) are far worse than the British. That’s why their royalty was abolished in 1918.
This isn’t about what you’ve experienced, this is about the legacy you choose to create. I hate the Nazis. I am most likely related to an upper party member of the Nazis and he did not get what he deserved from the nuremburg trials. Don’t damn all of Germany because of Hitler. You should hate him as much as Stalin.
You should save Germany if you get the chance same as England. Everybody is going on about Macron & Merkel. The real alliance needs to be Farrage and Petry. Le Pen can handle herself. Fight for the little guy that will enrich your cause. Not the psychos that want to steal your thunder & twist the truth. You can tell who those guys are because they won’t listen to you. Okay?
Please, please, please, please, please! My only wish in this world is you see somethibg and some one to love in it. Because if you don’t, you’re alone & angry and you will become what you hate.

Keith Barnes- I am so sick of this speculation about Theresa May…………

I was stationed in Germany while serving in the British Army, the nearest Town of any size was called Zella, I am not sure of that spelling. The Camp where I was stationed was an ex SS camp and still had Swastika’s painted all over the place,it was connected to Bellson Consentration Camp, right next to it.
commented 2018-11-19 11:16:15 -0500
Keith Barnes- I am so sick of this speculation about Theresa May, I’m physically sick of it. I flat out refuse to talk about it further. I am pro Germany, anti EU and that is final. I love the USA especially if the smack the stupid British around.

Keith Barnes-
Theresa May would absolutely win against a non-confidence vote. The gig is up.
Its a wicked game you are playing & its gross. We all know the facts, thank you.

Karen, Theresa May is certainly no Iron Lady, Iron Maiden perhaps and just as
‘Red’ Sky News is clamming up on everything this am (pm for them) but are admitting that there are now 23 known votes of none confidence against May, they need 48 to be effective. More are coming in today as members return to work after the weekend.
Spain has thrown another distraction into the works, demanding that the UK return Gibraltar to them, as part of the deal. The people of Gibraltar had a vote on this a while ago and voted overwhelmingly to stay a part of the UK.
Life gets tedious, don’t it.
commented 2018-11-19 00:19:41 -0500
Keith Barnes-
Furthermore, there are no Iron Ladies with Conservatives because they always attach the first dame to the mass when the ship is burning before abandoning ship.
No guy wants the job, but “let’s sucker a woman into doing it so they can all hate her” kind of mentality.
Time to move past that.
commented 2018-11-19 00:15:15 -0500
Keith Barnes- Lol!
Okay, fair point about May. Ah well.
Regretably, Merkel is the current Iron Lady.
Frauke Petry is the right wing nationalist party leader of Germany. AfD, I believe? She hates the EU.
The party is the equvialent of the PPC only official & legally allowed to run.
Her fight for German independence is a whooper of a job.
commented 2018-11-18 23:45:44 -0500
Karen, who the Eff is Frauke Petry?

Keith Barnes- I just can’t get over YOU think Merkel is scared of May………

Karen, I did not explain myself to well. I meant that Merkel is scared that May is to weak to stand up to the pressure that she is under and could put her job before her duty to keep the UK in the EU. Unfortunately May wants to be another Iron Lady.

You say that you are old but I bet you ain’t as old as I am! Lol.
commented 2018-11-18 22:02:40 -0500
Keith Barnes- I just can’t get over YOU think Merkel is scared of May under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES after dealing with Putin. P-U-T-I-N and his dog.
Priorities buddy. She’s worried about an invasion by land. May can blab her way about anything, nobody would believe her because the rug is being pulled out from her and she’ll land on her tooshie. May has had her chances at world domination & she won’t rat on Merkel because then they’ll both go down in flames.
Maybe they’re secret lesbians, I dunno.
Enough speculation. Don’t get my nerves like that. I’m old with a weak ticker. Should be a disclaimer on these damn Ezra Levant shows about staying away if you have a pace maker.
Andrew Stephenson-
The only way to move the spectrum back into the middle would be to invade each party and re-align the system. Or jolt it back with populism.
The carbon tax IS AN INDUSTRIAL TAX that everybody pays for to stop the bleeding of a huge trade deficit.
Would tarrifs be a better idea? Sure.
It won’t happen with the current weak leadership.

Keith Barnes, Robert Greeley- You know what? None of this is happening. I’ve died and gone to hell for my sins.
Europe isn’t going to be torn to shreds and the USA doesn’t have to bitch slap any nation back in order. Its a big conspiracy like the moon landing. Yah, that’s it. That’s better.
Here is a song for you.
commented 2018-11-18 21:28:49 -0500
Keith Barnes- Ah! I don’t wanna die in WW3! I want to live!
Merkel ain’t scared of Theresa May BY A LONG SHOT.
She’s scared of Macron. That weaselly psycho with a kink for old women!
Theresa May is being torn to shreds at home. Merkel has her house in order and Macron wants to move in because of the crap that’s going down in France. Crazy!! Insanity unhinged! Ludicrously bat-shit nutty time! Its like a WW2 movie merged with a Peter Sellers comedy.
Can’t every leader in Europe just stfu, go home, keep things to themselves and stop mingling all together? Tah-HELL with open borders. Its a f**king sh*t show.
commented 2018-11-18 21:12:20 -0500
Journalists won’t call out Unifor, because they retain journalistic freedom and are not told what to write by the union. As part of that, they don’t try to infringe on other’s journalistic freedom by telling them what’s acceptable to publish. Ezra, of all people, should know that.

Just to make it simple. I f**king can’t stand the carbon tax. Its the tax of slavery. "

It’s a fuel tax, by a different name. You already pay fuel taxes (that’s why the court challenges won’t go anywhere). There are already taxes on other industrial emissions as well

“Peter Netterville commented 1 day ago
If the left got their way and all conservatives vanished, the world became completely left/progressive, I wonder if they can imagine the world they would have to live in. "

You’d simply recalibrate the “middle”. There will always be those that push for progress and those that want things to change more slowly, or not at all. Eliminate the “right” and the centre-minded left would become the new conservatives. Eliminate the Left and the small-cs would become the new Left. Left vs. Right are relative terms.

To some extent it’s already happened, as the political definitions have moved leftward over time. The Right, as it was recognized 50 years ago, is essentially gone and the hippie generation is the new Right.

Corruption aside, to say PET did a good thing with the charter, is well, unfortunate. Our Charter/Constitution is a “living document”, evident in the smattering of documents that comprise it, unlike the American Constituition, which in theory, is and iron clad document. "

The US document ends up being “living” via court judgements anyway, simply because their constitution is very simple and doeskin’ address complex modern issues – their challenges typically involve situations where the Constitution is ambiguous or doesn’t define it at all. They have to make decisions in the “spirit” of the constitution. This is also true in Canada, although our judges generally put a higher priority on “fair” rulings rather than literal ones.
commented 2018-11-18 20:23:19 -0500
Keith Barnes- I agree with you to some extent……….

Karen, Beware the Guardian, a far left comic book who supports May and is strongly pro Europe and Remain. Merkel, ex KGB who came to western Germany when the Berlin Wall came down. She will do or say anything to keep the UK under the power of the EU, she is scared of Britain because of what is known as Merkel’s Murky Past. As a officer of the KBG, she she was not a very nice person, it seems…

Breaking news. ‘Red’ Sky News at 2300 GMT, is reporting that the Brit army is being put on standby in case;

1…….If May is given a vote of no confidence they expect severe Riots by Muslims

2……If May manages to remain in power….Riots by Brexiteers. All 17.4 million of them.

3……If a No Deal Brexit wins….Riots by Remainers.

Who’s panicking?
commented 2018-11-18 18:52:58 -0500
Keith Barnes- I agree with you to some extent. We should ALLLLLLLLLLL be panicking about May & Macron. Germany is.
Germany is having a total melt down in case of an invasion from UK & The Americans. Never mind Macron showing up to spirit away the EU to form an army like Napoleon!
Bleeping frightening as hell.
Germany has a plan. It involves an iron defence system from any outsider. Especially Macron!
commented 2018-11-18 18:23:17 -0500
Keith Barnes- If you guys are upset about how May has to fight to please both sides without being crucified, guess what Frauke Petry has to endure. IF she wins.

People have to understand. If May’s Checkers deal go’s through and it most certainly will if May is not stopped. Then Britain is tied down in perpetuity to the EU. In other words Britain will be dead.

The only thing that would save Britain is Trump launching a couple of Nukes against Europe. Remember Trumps Mother was Scottish and Trump is entitled to British Citizenship.
Right now is a good time for Trump to send a couple of Missile Launch Destroyers and have them anchored in Plymouth Harbor.

I know I’m know I’m not trying to screw you over and I’m happy you stand up for the USA and Canada.
Canada & the USA will always be a beacon of freedom even with mentally ill politicians.
Why? Because there are people like you to defend the citadel.

Keith Barnes.. I think I’m pretty much obvious to which side I’m on..I am not a devious person..I just don’t trust people in general. There has been too many who have fu…d me over because of my happy go lucky attitude. Now.. I and the Canadian population have to deal with a severely deranged mental illness liberalist globalist traitor and traitors to Canada..only secures and fortify’s my distrust of Canadian Politicians and their supporters.

Macron has just this minute, (7.20 GMT) stated that the Armies of Europe must unite to fight the aggressors of this world. As we all know he includes the USA in ‘aggressive’.

Of course, Macron would be in charge.
