The Rebel Live is coming to Calgary on November 10 — Get tickets now!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Hey, we don’t just do great videos at the Rebel. We do great events with our most loyal viewers, too! We’ve had movie premieres, and educational trips to foreign countries, and we’ve even had a few rallies against the carbon tax, before it was cool.


But my favourite event each year is definitely what we call The Rebel Live.

It’s a day-long conference for true conservatives — not the timid, CBC-approved variety. Real conservatives, talking about things that matter.

We had Jordan Peterson even before his book took off. We had Doug Ford even before he was premier of Ontario. And of course we’ve brought you fascinating conservatives from around the world — like our own Katie Hopkins from the UK.

We’ll, we’re doing it again, and this time we’re doing it in the heart of conservatives country — my spiritual home, Calgary! On Saturday, November 10, we’ve got an amazing day planned. GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!

You want great speakers? We’ve got ‘em:

* Free speech activist Lindsay Shepherd, who fought the censors at Laurier University and won.

* Canada’s most successful conservative public interest lawyer, John Carpay, who sues governments who step on our rights.

* Robbie Picard, the unstoppable oilsands activist.

* Our own fearless and outspoken Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid — and so many more!

We’ve invited Andrew Scheer to attend; we haven’t heard back from him yet, but other MPs will be there, including Brad Trost and Maxime Bernier, who just launched a new party. 

So come join us in Calgary, on November 10 — but you’d better hurry!

Our early-bird pricing ends this Friday, October 20. Until that moment, it’s just $75 — afterwards, it goes up to $95 dollars.

(By the way, we’ve got great student prices too.)

Did I mention we’ve got an amazing barbecue food truck coming for lunch — included in the price

But get your tickets now! Go to and take advantage of that early-bird pricing.

Conservative women are supposed to be strong, smart, graceful & empathetic.
We are not cheer leaders.
We are not useful idiots.
Our speech is free as well as our thoughts.
Same goes for men.
Let values guide your choices, not vengance.Otherwise its not democracy, it is feudalism.

Liza Rosie- So what?! What actaully is conservative means nothing to you as long as your dark horse wins and everybody that disappoints you looses?
Every “party” member is false until Bernier actually has a party.
The Reformers broke away from the Conservatives.
The Reformers didn’t see the difference between Quebec and the rest of Canada.
The Reformers wanted to de-centralize the federal gov’t and wanted democratic reform.
The Reformers wanted tax cuts & wanted free trade.
They were also pro family at the time and had strong conservative christian values that opposed homosexuality (thankfully that has changed).
The Reformers were a break away conservative POPULIST party and was actually a party before it asked for money from such a wide base.
And I believe your darling Ezra Levant also supported that actual party in its infancy.
Do you care what’s conservative or are you just being a cheer leader Liza Rosie?
You help no one with blind support.

So what? Look we’ll just have to wait and see what transpires. The podcast interview in the link I posted gives some info on where the party stands today after 7 (?) weeks with 30,077 founding members with around 1/3 of the ridings covered. I would like nothing better than to see Bernier as PM, however I think a more likely scenario is that the PPC may be the next opposition with CPC in power. All supposition at this time, but I think Canada may be done with Justin. Like I said, at this point, who knows. Then there is the fixed election thing. Not much trust out there these days.

Liza Rosie- The Reformers were organized and official BEFORE they did major crowd funding.
commented 2018-10-31 21:21:36 -0400
Tell that to Scheer.
Not having to legally disclose how the funds were raised so far still means he has to provide an audited financial statement that would include income statements and a balance sheet. Wouldn’t that reveal to elections Canada that he complied with the donor laws or not? I have no idea why that is the law.
commented 2018-10-31 16:09:25 -0400
Liza Rosie- “But it appears no one donated more than the $1575.00 limit.”
Until Bernier discloses HOW each dollar was earned (which he does not have to), then get him to disclose donors.
A conservative value is a transparent gov’t.
commented 2018-10-31 15:06:20 -0400
“He said his goal is to raise $3.5 million before the election in the fall of 2019.

The People’s Party of Canada will have to provide an audited financial statement of assets within six months of registration but does not have to disclose how it raised those funds. If the documents submitted Wednesday fulfil the requirements, the party will become registered as soon as it endorses its first candidate."

“Bernier says they have raised every dollar according the rules for registered parties, including maximum donations per person of $1,575, but the People’s Party of Canada does not have to disclose the identity of donors who donated funds prior to the party’s formal registration.”
Since by law he doesn’t have to disclose the identity of donors before formal registration I doubt he will. But it appears no one donated more than the $1575.00 limit. There have been no big fundraisers backed by any large corp or cartel so far, so wouldn’t it be safe to say it doesn’t much matter? Since it doesn’t much matter maybe he will disclose.
commented 2018-10-31 14:28:31 -0400
There is so much misrepresentation both in politics and the media that getting to the truth through the bare facts is a very twisty path. If Bernier is a crook, lets reveal it, if Scheer has been paid off I want to know.

We do however know that the dairy cartel donates and raises mucho dollars to Scheer, which isn’t bad in itself but goes against the benefit of most Canadians. He has been completely transparent about it to the point of rubbing it in our faces (drinking from a carton of milk on camera) .
commented 2018-10-31 13:36:30 -0400
I think it is healthy that people are becoming more suspicious of the candidates. Too may times they represent themselves as something they are not and people are tired of it. Canadians do deserve to know the true motives and agendas of the politicians they put their hearts and their dollars behind.
commented 2018-10-31 13:26:05 -0400
I have just found this site. It is going to be a slog. It might be something to check back with when PPC is officially listed.
“Who Backs Canada’s politicians” “Follow The Money Here.”

Put out by Post Media. I am finding it a difficult site to maneuver.
It states, “All political donations are public. They aren’t necessarily easy to access.”

commented 2018-10-31 12:54:11 -0400
Most of the big players like Bombardier and the Desmarais family of Quebec, I found donated fairly equally to both the cpc and the liberals (leaning slightly more to the liberals) in the last election cycle of 2015. I don’t however have anything on if they donated to any of the cpc leadership candidates.

One thing that really bothers me about Scheer, aside from the fact that he was bullied into capitulating with the leftwing liars about the Rebel, is that immediately after he got in as leader of the party he deleted the platform he ran on. It makes him look like just another politician who got elected on false advertising like Justin did. He still has no platform on which voters can base support.
commented 2018-10-31 12:47:00 -0400
Its only that you said Lowell Green accused people. Could you tell us who he has accused?
Also while you’re at it, could you give me a link to the CPC doner list if you are aware of Scheer’s donors. You seem to indicate that he is transparent to Berniers opaque. It seems to me that should be more easy to find from all the parties. No one seems very transparent. I did however find that in the leadership race Scott Gilmore, Climate Barbies hubby donated to Chong (conservative in name only), so we know the lib rats were circling.

In the leadership race I found some donors who gave to Bernier. I don’t know if they still support him now for the PPC
Michael M. Fortier former conservative Senator
Pat Perkins Oshawa MP
Kory Teneycke, former cpc spokesperson for Harper
conservative Senator Linda Frums husband and several cpc MP’s
as well as Emery(not surprised, since Justin wouldn’t have anything to do with him, he probably gave to Scheer as well but that is supposition on my part)
commented 2018-10-31 08:49:14 -0400
Ask Bernier. He has the information. Why would he want to hide the names?
commented 2018-10-31 03:03:49 -0400
“The only liberal rats in the soup are those accused by Lowell Green”
So who are they?
commented 2018-10-31 02:57:17 -0400
Good idea.
commented 2018-10-31 01:51:53 -0400
So all that you have remaining for an argument is that there is no proof Bernier is corrupt. Everything else I have mentioned is now undisputed. Bernier’s corruption will be proven once he reveals the names of the Liberals who have purchased him.

Now it’s time for The Rebel to stand up and ask Bernier for these names. Let’s see if Ezra has the guts to ask the question.

The Government of Canada has a duty to ensure the rights and wellbeing of Canadians;
The maintenance of our borders and limited merit-based immigration are essential to our rights and wellbeing;
Polls consistently have shown the majority of Canadians reject illegal border crossing and subordination of our citizens’ needs to those of illegal aliens; and
Several of our allies notably the United States of America, Poland, Hungary and Austria have withdrawn from the United Nations’ global migration pact citing its threats to their sovereignty, peace, order and good governance.
We, the undersigned, Canadians, call upon the Government of Canada to likewise withdraw from the Global Compact For Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.

imo..all Bernier needs is a couple of great endorsements..timing is everything.
commented 2018-10-30 22:57:09 -0400
NDP Sucks, seriously, your logic tells you that since there are corrupt Quebec politicians , Bernier is corrupt? You are going to have to do better than that.
Could it be could it be?
Supposition is supposition, its not an argument.
commented 2018-10-30 13:18:28 -0400
On his way out the door Bernier spewed that the CPC was morally and intellectually corrupt. You can interpret that any way you want because Bernier did not provide any details, at least not to my knowledge. Bernier was requested to provide the donor list prior to registering the party and he refused. His moral obligation resides soley with himself. Maybe a member of the PPC can work up the courage and ask him to reveal this information. The CPC like any other political party are obligated by law to reveal their donor list. What is Bernier hiding and why is he not being transparent?

Rempell called Bernier lazy and not a team player. These facts can be found on either twitter or on one of her videos. Harper also called Bernier a sore loser.

You don’t think Quebec politicians are not corrupt? It took me about five seconds to find this link.

How about corrupt prime ministers from Quebec. Here is another link that took about 5 seconds to locate.

Maybe you should take a closer look at Maxime’s father who sold out to Chretien. Like father like son.

You talk about Bernier making equalization more fair. He is bashing Quebec on this very issue and now expects to garner votes in Quebec. Yeah that makes a lot of sense so good luck with that. If Max is so damned principled then why did he go along to get along all these years with the equalization formula. Could it be Max is now qualified to collect his gold plated pension and no matter what happens he has a secure future. Could it be Max does not want to play with anyone who disagrees with him? Could it be Max is a politician of opportunity for his personal benefit?

BTW, there is lots of noise coming from Alberta over equalization because they are the province along with Saskatchewan that are producing these dollars. Kenney is on record stating he will fight the federal government on this issue. Brad Wall has been fighting this issue for years and Scott Moe is continuing that fight.

Scheer is not losing support, he is gaining. I provided a recent link to that fact. Scroll down to see it. Maybe you need to spend some time viewing CPC videos, question period, facebook page of Scheer and CPC, other CPC MP’s who are making lots of statements. Check out Rempell, Polievre, Genuis, Bezanson, etc etc etc.

The only liberal rats in the soup are those accused by Lowell Green who has stated he confirmed Bernier has accepted large donations from WELL KNOWN LIBERALS before the PPC was registered. The question is who are these people. We need to hear their names and only Max has control of that information. WILL SOMEBODY FROM THE MEMBERSHIP OR THE REBEL ASK BERNIER FOR THESE NAMES? WHY IS BERNIER HIDING THIS INFORMATION?

I’ll be there in Cowtown on the 10th…looking forward to seeing all the happy, smiling faces…

Amen Liza Rosie!…

May the best man win.
commented 2018-10-28 16:27:02 -0400
“The point is he shouldn’t be accusing people of something that he is doing himself.” No its not the point because Bernier was talking about conservative values not being respected. Regarding liberal donor lists, maybe he will, has anyone asked him? The legal limit is1000 isn’t it? I’m not sure what the list would show exactly.
Do you have a link to Rempel saying that NDP, I can’t find anything about it.
“Max on the other hand is hiding this information which amounts to $347,000.”
How is he hiding anything?
What about Scheer’s transparency, the cpc donor list, if you want to go there.
Isn’t is kind of a cheap shot to try to tear him down because he comes from Quebec and to compare him to trudeau Sr.? I was around to watch Pierre also right from the beginning and there are no comparisons other than both men have/had confidence and were born in Quebec. Pierre was a communist born with a silver spoon in his mouth and Bernier has worked for everything he has accomplished.
What about Bernier wanting to make equalization payments to the provinces more fair? I don’t hear anyone else talking about equalization payments except to say they aren’t going there. What about Scheer’s pandering to the Quebec dairy cartel, a handful of farmers, at the expense of Canadians pocket books?
Scheer has been opposition leader since May 27, 2017. If he lost so much support the minute someone else showed up, it has to tell him something.
His vision doesn’t give me any faith that he will be much different from the liberals. He isn’t making the moves or even mouthing the words I need to hear to believe he hasn’t been swayed by the global agenda Justin is ruining us with. Speaking of liberal rats in the soup, I think that rot in the cpc have convinced him to play along to some degree to hedge their bets if Justin loses enough favor. He appears easily manipulated.
commented 2018-10-28 14:22:57 -0400
Bernier had been planning his exit as soon as he lost the leadership job and that is why he eventually departed because there was sufficient examples to have him booted out of the CPC. He waited until he could no longer wait and his time had arrived to either leave in a huff or get booted.

Regarding Scheer’s attempt to work with Bernier well that was tried and it failed. Rempell is on record saying Bernier is lazy. She formally requested his assistance with the immigration file, probably because his riding of Beuce is the closest the CPC has to Roxham Road. Bernier refused this request and Rempell is on record confirming this fact.

Max has no legal requirement to reveal his donors prior to registering the party. It is a moral decision not to reveal the names of these donors. The point is he shouldn’t be accusing people of something that he is doing himself. Max did not provide any details to my knowledge of what exactly the CPC were doing that could be considered morally corrupt. Max on the other hand is hiding this information which amounts to $347,000. Lack of transparency from the get go does not support his own cause. Corruption from Quebec has a long history since Pierre Trudeau. Superiority from Quebec has also been evident since Pierre Trudeau. I saw this superiority myself since 1976 but I won’t bore you with the details.

There is lots of time before the election. Scheer is just starting to spend money to get his name out there. He doesn’t have the same 1.5 billion dollar advertisement firm gushing about him like the CBC does for Justin. Scheer does makes appearances such as in Halifax this weekend and he does do the tours in the summer time but again it is not advertised like Justin who gets a front page article with photos when he builds a mosque out of sand.
commented 2018-10-28 13:47:38 -0400
When Max called the CPC “morally corrupt”, it was regarding conservative values and speaking for myself, not taking the threats to this country in the long term seriously enough. Many of the cabinet are working hard, but it feels like they are spinning their tires and eventually capitulating with the Liberals.
commented 2018-10-28 13:40:48 -0400
Quebec superiority – isn’t it Scheer pandering to Quebec dairy farmers at the expense of the rest of Canada for votes?
commented 2018-10-28 13:38:11 -0400
“When is Max going to reveal his Liberal donors?”
I wouldn’t mind seeing that myself. But is that something that can be released, privacy laws and all?

Regarding the Quebec supremacy comment, I guess that’s why he wants to balance equalization payments so Quebec, who refuses to extract their own resources can’t suck off Alberta anymore. Doesn’t sound very Quebec centric to me.
commented 2018-10-28 13:31:34 -0400
I won’t argue that Bernier posted a snippet of his book on his twitter, but he did forgo publishing his book as demanded. However it has been common knowledge for many years what Max thinks of the Dairy cartel.

As you point out, that was just ONE of the reasons Scheer gave him the boot. Scheer should have found a way to keep Bernier and work with him, whether he wanted to or not. The tension between the two was bound to lead to an explosion. I am not 100% sure I will vote for Bernier even being a member, but he sounds more like a politician who respects conservative values to me at this point in time. Scheer on the other hand has disappointed, so far at least. Maybe this is the kick in the butt Scheer needs to up his game. It should be, because time is wasting. I had high hopes for Scheer, they dissipated quickly, something more to the point showed up. Its no ones fault but Scheer’s that he isn’t retaining the attention of many of his base. Maybe he can remedy that.
I am not deflecting, I am trying to be honest.
