Suzuki’s Honorary Degree Day HIJACKED by oil and gas supporters

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


This morning in Edmonton, CBC's Alberta-hating expert on everything, David Suzuki, received his controversial honorary doctorate from the University of Alberta.

The choice to honour the elderly environmentalist who, in a 2015 interview with Evan Solomon compared Alberta's oil and gas industry to the evils of slavery, has been a controversial one for the University.

The decision sparked outrage from high profile donors like Dragon's Den star Brett Wilson who penned an angry letter to let the university to let them know their cheque wasn't in the mail this year. A Calgary law firm also cancelled their annual $100K donation.

University President, Dave Turpin, is standing by his man, saying that "knowledge and progress are built on the free exchange of ideas".

Maybe he should tell that to Suzuki, who has openly advocated for the imprisonment of people he calls "climate criminals".

But Suzuki's big day was hijacked with a protest co-organized by Rally 4 Resources and Canada Action.

While Suzuki spoke inside to the spring convocation, protestors outside called Suzuki a hypocrite and a fake, and told me Suzuki was guilty of having the largest carbon footprint in Canada.

They weren't just bothered by Suzuki and his high flying, luxury living scolding. They were also angry at the University for rewarding Suzuki with its highest honour after a lifetime of promoting anti-science quackery.

One University of Alberta alumnus, even tried to return his degree to the school!

David Kawasaki, you do realize the book is fully footnoted and vetted by a lawyer! Your meth reference tells me more about you than anything else. Don’t tell me you are one of the Camp Cloud squatters!

I bought your book, Sheila. Apart from an apparent typo, it was excellent. What a disgusting man David Suzuki is. We all have our bad moments but his bad moment has been life long in scope. The only thing I can say in favour of him is that he won’t live forever on this world. He’ll meet the maker of us all and have to explain his wicked actions.

I thought the Rebel was planning on hiring a professional editor? This poorly written screed reads like it was written by a semi literate meth head during the 2nd week of a 3 week bender.

University President, Dave Turpin is a typical educational institutional lefty who is a no account turd.

Suzie needs a good kick in the teeth.

Stop all cash going to the University. It obviously is an enemy of the province.

Right On Sheila!!
If Suzuki has any shame, which I doubt an arrogant know-nothing would have, he’d go home & STFU!
UofA – y’all need to be ashamed for kissing this lunatic’s a$$! …may all your pencils break & your ink run! …and your memory fail.

Great job my fellow Albertans! I was there with you in spirit! A degree in hypocrisy is certainly what he gets from the people of AB. The U of A are truly fools and have made many people angry. Shame on them!
