SHOCKING: FOI docs reveal how far elites go to satisfy “King Suzuki’s” demands and hide his flaws

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator

Canada’s patron saint of climate alarmism, David Suzuki, is at it again.

The renowned fruit fly biologist was touring the country during the election last summer and fall, touting his environmentally-inspired anti-Conservative agenda. For much of the summer, he was stumping for Leadnow, the American-funded group that was encouraging strategic voting against Conservatives. On Sept. 21, he also brought his message to the University of Ottawa, however, as a guest of the school’s IVote-JeVote program, spearheaded by professor Kevin Page, formerly the Parliamentary Budget Officer.

Suzuki’s remarks at the publicly funded university excited organizers, with Page calling it a “bulls eye” and a colleague of his writing, “This is INCREDIBLE!!!!” in emails obtained exclusively by The Rebel under the Freedom of Information Act.

While Suzuki waived his fee, he had some other demands that the school had to meet. In addition to the $600 hotel bill the school paid, Suzuki also received a catered $219.79 meal for one in his private VIP room. And a chef was also required to be on site. (Even Thomas Mulcair didn’t get a personal chef when he spoke at the school just days later.)

Suzuki also demanded personal screening of any media requests, and would not do any scrums, which often allow for unvetted reporters to ask unplanned questions.

Not that it mattered. The magnanimous Order of Canada recipient was pontificating on the state of Canadian politics in the nation’s capital, but there were only two interview requests that came in for Suzuki: one from a French radio station (he turned it down because he doesn’t speak French) and the other from the University of Ottawa’s student newspaper.

It doesn’t seem like Suzuki needs to be that selective of interviews, because despite what CBC would have us believe, the interest in him is apparently non-existent.

Why, then, was the University of Ottawa waiting on him hand and foot?

Suzuki’s assistant required that the university provide a chaperone—not to help guide him from one place to another, but, I kid you not, to “deflect requests from the general public for selfies, posed photos, hugs and requests for a minute of his time.”

All of the rules and stipulations serve to put a wall between Suzuki and anyone who might challenge him. I learned how important that barrier is to him last September when I found myself face to face with him for an unplanned and unscreened interview.

I attended a press conference Leadnow was hosting with him in London, Ont.: I was the only member of the media who showed up. He didn’t know who I was, so sat down without issue.

The second I asked him a question about actual science, rather than politics, he started shouting at me.

Watch as I take you through the documents showing just how much the University of Ottawa was willing to cater to Suzuki in exchange for an anti-Conservative speech.

Without the CBC , Suzuki would have been just another old pot smoker living off his fathers money. My 94 yr. old father is a retired meteorologist with a Phd in Physics. He was a guest speaker at East Anglia University in England where the UN’s IPCC is based. Suzuki was never a guest speaker there because meteorolgy and climate science is not his field of training and experience . My father remembers working in the same Federal building in Vancouver where a young Suzuki was working. When the CBC had a science question about some news item they would go down to the Federal building and try to get an expert opinion. Scientists tend to be introverts by nature so most would decline to speak on camera. However young Suzuki was always willing to pose for the camera. When the original host of Nature of Things moved on the CBC looked around for a new host and thought of the camera hungry young man over at the Federal building. The rest is history. Being the state organ and propaganda ministry the CBC basically made Suzuki famous even though his science shows were little more than high school level science.
He was a weirdo when he was young and he’s only gotten worse. He shares a characteristic with people like Paris Hilton and Ryan Seacrest – famous for being famous and little else.

Given Dr. Zook’s trajectory in recent years, I wouldn’t be surprised if he “pops his cork” in public sometime in the coming months… There’s a fascinating book to be written when that does happen; perhaps a classic in psychiatric literature…

I hold as much disrespect for Suzuki and his lies as anybody, but I don’t see much that’s “shocking” about this speech or his compensation. Other than he deserves zero compensation for peddling his propaganda.
I support the Rebel continuing to report on his worldwide fraud circus, but this article is weak. Dishonest, even. Room service bill is obviously for 5 people. And, “I kid you not”? Terrible, lazy writing. Please find some other way to express incredulity

Suzi is an elitist that loves his luxury – he went over to the dark side many years ago.

Jay Kelly the Rebel is reporting how money is wasted and what a fraud he is.
commented 2016-06-10 01:20:17 -0400
It’s strange how his executive assistant stipulated that Suzuki be provided with a glass of tap water on the podium while he gave his speech (no bottled water), yet his hotel room service bill shows a charge of $9.75 for Perrier at $1.95 each. Does Perrier come from a faucet at that particular hotel? That’s the only way I can reconcile these two requests.

I used to cut his fathers lawn in Point Grey when I was young back in the 70’s. I remember Suzuki when he was a long dark haired pot smoker back then. He never impressed me then and its obvious the long term pot smoking has done nothing for his brain. The CBC hired him when the original host of Nature of Things left and they pimped his game and used every propaganda trick in the book to portray him as a legitimate scientist . The dude is the Ryan Seacrest of science , famous for being famous – nothing more.
commented 2016-06-10 00:25:02 -0400
No, OByrne, I just notice that while saying the world takes little interest in Suzuki, The Rebel is practically obsessed with him.
commented 2016-06-09 23:50:20 -0400
what’s wrong kelly you don’t like the rebel exposing your little fruit fly for the sham he is and how big a trough feeder this pig is, too effing bad suck it up
commented 2016-06-09 23:39:31 -0400
Andrew Lawton says that “despite what CBC would have us believe, the interest in him is apparently non-existent”. Not true. The Rebel has carried numerous stories on him in recent months with apparent great interest. What other eighty-year-old causes such a stir?
commented 2016-06-09 22:44:25 -0400
It’s no wonder he wants someone to run interference after his trip to Australia where real scientists tore him to shreds and proved he has absolutely zero knowledge about anything he spouts off about. He’s where he is because of his time entertaining on the CBC, and certainly not because of his scientific knowledge or credibility. Why anyone even bothers with him is surprising. The fact that he had only two requests for interviews, and very insignificant ones at that, shows just how little, people value what he has to say.
commented 2016-06-09 22:11:21 -0400
No shortage of CBC air time for the barrage of ads paid for by the Federal government showing Suzuki lecturing 6 year olds sitting terrorized about how we adults are destroying the planet and they are going to suffer for it. If ever there was a case for child-abuse this is it! This guy is more than a menace.
commented 2016-06-09 22:09:44 -0400
Just can’t stand watching/ listening to Suzuki – he is my “vision” of what the missing link must look like!! If the idiot would ever listen to himself – I am positive he would STFU! – that idiot contradicts himself in same sentences! And those who worship/respect him are apprentice idiots!

I recall hearing David discussing his fathers auto biography way back on some radio show , and it seems they were A little bitter how the war went for these two from the house of the rising sun
This could be a revenge pathos going on here—sticking it to the west

One doesn’t need to be a scientist to know Suzuki is a blatant – retarded LIAR!! …he is a filthy Fraud!

I hear he likes doing University gigs because he gets dewy coeds to wait on him.

A one percent? Nah, David’s just a common man. Don’t we all eat $300 dinners? I’m sure it was locally sourced and that’s why it was a bit more costly than a regular meal. You’d think one of the lefties would be outraged and call him out on this. More proof that it isn’t the issue. The issue is power and money. “Professing to be wise, they became fools”.

King Suzuki, the king of the fruit fly orgies.

St David of the Motorbike. Failed scientist who got a gig as a CBC front man through affirmative action hiring because he was the son of a suspected 5th columnist. How did he become worth $50M or more as a failed professor, CBC front man, and professional speaker?

Something I will always bring up on any story about St Motormouth…I mean motorbike…I mean Suzuki.

Excellent reporting Andrew Lawton, keep up the great work. - – -

Environmentalist Dr. David Suzuki interview on Q&A Australian Television on the ABC 22-9-2013

“David Suzuki’s performance on Q&A last night was extraordinary. I was knock-me-over amazed that he has not heard of UAH, GISS, HADcrut and RSS, and knew nothing of the pause in global surface temperatures that even the UK Met Office and IPCC lead author climate scientists like Hans von Storch are discussing.”

Climate Scientists Laugh at Global Warming Hysteria
Published on May 15, 2013
“Respected Australian scientists laugh at Julia Gillard, David Suzuki and other climate change drama queens.”

What a pompous arrogant little prig this Suzuki is and it grates me that our tax dollars have provided him with such an entitled existence for decades. He lives in a sheltered bubble , protected from reality by the CBC brass so he can spew his lies and deceptions like all the other so called celebrities at our National Propaganda Network. what a joke.
commented 2016-06-09 18:53:27 -0400
Instead of the usual ending funding and cuts to CBC, conservatives should use CBC to their advantage and make it ideology fair, such as firing Suzuki for his Stalinist comments about jailing people who disagree with his views on environmentalism, and instead replace him with a conservative voice giving an alternative viewpoint

Do as I command, not as I do (because you’re not entitled!). Another lefty elitist!

Ir always comes down to the power & money grab. That’s all he’s about and all he’s ever been about. I’m sure he’s crazy, like all cult leaders, but I don’t think he even believes himself. So I think he just lies and lies and lies some more.

Awesome comments, all of you here, common sense people that can see the truth out there. Andrew, you are a super interviewer with ugly, lying and entitled susuki. Good work Andrew, and please keep it up. You are better than left wing liberal and ndp ctv, cbc and global put together. You are a blessing that we desperately need on the right.

I’m surprised that he isn’t blaming his arthritis on climate change!

In regards to Suzuki citing the IPCC explanation that the oceans absorbed the increase temperature for the last 18 years I have to wonder, why did the oceans choose just that 18 year period only to absorb the heat from the atmosphere and not earlier years? Darn those oceans anyway!
commented 2016-06-09 17:17:09 -0400
This is typical of the sociopaths that are among the Progressivist-Sodomites. Suzuki is a cult leader, pure and simple. One wonders what the broken people who follow him are capable of. Violence, without a doubt.

But get him out of Canada, and he becomes an ordinary babbling idiot, a mere mortal.
