Trudeau's “special censorship team” issues report — and Andrew Scheer has no comment

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


It really is coming fast now: Literally every week there is another plan or study or bill or law or proposal by Trudeau and his Liberal government to censor Canadians.

And I’m staggered that the leader of Canada’s conservative Party, Andrew Scheer is silent on the matter.

Here's the latest, a report from a special censorship team hired by Trudeau’s Department of Industry.

It’s called the Broadcasting and Communications Legislative Review panel. 

And who is this panel of elite experts, anyways? 

They're a bunch of Ottawa insiders, mainly. The chair, Janet Yale, has donated thousands of dollars to the Liberal Party, going back years.

She also used to be the CEO of the Canadian Cable Television Association — so I bet she hates upstart Internet companies like The Rebel that are eroding cable TV.

But even if she wasn’t a former lobbyist for our competitors; even if she wasn’t the biggest Liberal donor I’ve ever come across; even if she was actually interested in accuracy, independence and trustworthiness — why on earth should anyone in this country care what she thinks?

Well, Janet Yale and this committee just published their report.

It's not about freedom, or giving people more choice on the Internet, at cheaper prices. It’s about censorship.

You can find it in the section titled "Social Harm in a Digital Environment.”

TONIGHT, I'll take you through this report — which is something no one else in Canadian media will do, with the exception of the independent news website, Blacklocks.

Watch and I'll explain why every freedom loving Canadian should be concerned about the proposals in this report.

As I've been saying for a while, this is a merger between big government and big tech. Then Trudeau can outsource his censorship to the private sector, where it won’t be subject to scrutiny or accountability.

And the Media Party don’t mind one bit. They're going to get $600 million soon from Trudeau. If he and his lobbyist friends have to shut up a few loudmouths on the Internet — well, they should have been shut up anyways, right? It’s just a small price to pay for social order, and to remove "social harm"...

One day my friends, you’ll wake up and we’ll just be gone. Remember us, will you?

NEXT: This week, President Trump made a historic visit to North Korea. A leading expert on the region, Gordon Chang, joins me to explain what this meeting could mean for the United States, and the rest of the world.

Eyes Open wrote,“Unfortunately I do not see many positive Scheer articles in the Rebel.”

Eyes Open, please post some positive articles on Scheer. I can’t find any that upon scrutiny stand up to criticism. With all due respect I think Ezra is reporting what he sees, and since Scheer has rejected us, he doesn’t give any of us much to work with other than what his recent policies list and his interviews on the msm tell us, which I think most of us watch. But I for one would like to see loyal CPC members post what they think are sound policies. I recommend people open tabs of the policy pages of the different parties and compare them.

“But we need Scheer and he will eventually come around.”

I admire your optimism, but don’t share it. How do you vote for someone in the hopes that he is playing some sort of taqiyya game now to get elected, but really will act like a conservative once he gets in?
If you think Scheer is the only guy to save this country , start posting some CPC stuff. Also, why don’t you email Ezra directly to make sure he gets your message?

Dear Ezra,
I admire the Rebel and am a big fan.
As you are aware in the coming October election Canada’s only hope is a Conservative government led by Scheer.
I see you give Maxime Bernier nice interviews. Which is fine. I understand Scheer will not do an interview with you. While I disagree with Scheer’s decision I se no reson why you can not do balanced and fair coverage of him. I know rejection is bad for the ego, I myself have paid for letting my ego get in the way of good actions sometimes. But please take the high road and support Scheer and the Conservatives. Most Conservatoves support you. But we need Scheer and he will eventually come around. Unortunately I do not see many positive Scheer articles in the Rebel. Please consider reflecting on ego issues and professionalize your approach.

A proud Rebel Fan.

- Team Trudeau has no business being in office. Scheer has no business being in a leadership position. So we see the main debate being who has the best carbon tax – something most Canadians (at least the ones who work for a living outside government) don’t want at all. So the Liberals, desperate to rig the coming election, move to censor the internet & Scheer hides under his desk. Canada dies in weakness & insanity.

- Trump is actually getting things done in North Korea. He may or may not be successful but at least he’s doing something. The only thing past presidents accomplished was to look the other way while they developed the atomic bomb & their missile program.

canadians are committing suicide at the hands of trudeau a part time drama teacher/ski instructor/bouncer who has never had to do an honest days work in his life born of a nazi supporting, conscription deserting traitor and living off other peoples money and everything this former country afforded him.
This is the end for OUR freedoms, rights, democracy and lives AND YOU ALL GO ALONG WITH IT.
I am amazed that MILLIONS OF PEOPLE are literally committing suicide via this sociopaths agenda- and you all are PAYING HIM TO DO IT!!
Talk about a MIND CONTROL- canadians are all part of trudeaus death cult as they WILLINGLY become the victims!
he, his family , friends, cabinet members, elites and invaders ARE ALL FREE TO ENJOY WHAT OUR LIVES, MONEY HAS TO OFFER and again, we line up gleefully to the slaughter!
no wonder the world has turned their backs on us!

My main beef with Bernier is that he chose to run PPC in close-vote ridings where a small split on the right assures a Lib or NDP victory.

Say what, Billy? Maxime Bernier has stated many, many times that the PPC plan to run a candidate in all 338 ridings. He has over 300 candidates so far. The Wave is coming, join the PPC and elect the party for ALL Canadians.
commented 2019-07-04 10:06:31 -0400
Ron Voss is right about split votes being a non-issue in heavily conservative ridings. I would also suggest PPC run in ridings where CPC is assured to lose, thus causing no effect on that seat while raising the stature of PPC. Then in 2023, PPC can re-evaluate the number of ridings to run in.
My main beef with Bernier is that he chose to run PPC in close-vote ridings where a small split on the right assures a Lib or NDP victory. Bernier puts his ego ahead of throwing Trudeau out of office and risking another 4 years of Libranos that Canada may not be able to come back from. tsk tsk

Andy, .. you mean.. Canada isn’t back?
commented 2019-07-04 04:21:00 -0400
To quote Clark Gable:- “I frankly don’t give a damn!”… I will vote PPC and the people of Canada will have to decide what is true or subtle or clever or strategic or expedient or “whatever”… And in that that this nation’s true future will be decided… Obviously… I used to believe that Canada’s dominant position on the world stage was a given, given its geography and natural resources… But apparently that is not even so given the “children’s crusade” marching on to God knows what in Ottawa right now…
commented 2019-07-04 02:39:57 -0400
But it isn’t really a split at all when the CPC aren’t acting like the conservative party anymore.
commented 2019-07-04 01:31:07 -0400
Denying Conservative vote splitting is a hard circle to square, however I remember Liza’s post where she pointed out that the Left will split the vote 3 ways, so why can’t the Right split it 2 ways? Well said!

Well said Barbara Kay.

“If he’s scared of their (the Liberals and their leftwing media friends) attacks before the campaign even starts, how will he (Andrew Scheer) be when the heat is on?”
- Rex Murphy (with the recent disavowal of Professor Salim Mansur as a PPC candidate) – June 14, 2019

The split the vote argument is tantamount to voting out of fear instead of out of conviction. Sad that the future of Canada stands in the balance of such cowardice.

LIZA ROSIE commented, Peter said, "Partly, because he is really a CINO, but the split vote will be partly to blame as well. "

A response to the fear-mongering mantra, a vote for Max Bernier is a vote for Trudeau: A vote for Max is a vote for Max and the People’s Party of Canada, a true conservative, free-market, pro-Canadian Party – true North Strong & Free. Vote your values and principles.

As well, if you live in Alberta, a conservative stronghold, voting for a PPC candidate will in no way elect a Liberal. For example, in my riding, a CPC MP last time garnered about 65% of the vote, so the vote would be split between a CINO and a true conservative with the hope that the split works in favour of the PPC candidate, for example, 35% for PPC and 30% for CPC. Don’t vote out of fear, but rather out of conviction.

Stephen Hicken, then why doesn’t he stand up to them? re: “If Scheer opens his mouth and says almost anything the Liberals and the media will tear him apart 4 months before the election”. If he had from the beginning he could have curbed a lot of the abuse he takes. How can he be silent on this censorship escalation? He is completely ignoring what Trudeau is ushering in?

I read about that Ron. trudeau is a disgrace.
commented 2019-07-03 23:30:56 -0400
Trudeau and Scheer. I scorn the first and also his scurvy companion.
commented 2019-07-03 23:20:04 -0400
If Scheer opens his mouth and says almost anything the Liberals and the media will tear him apart 4 months before the election.As it is now with Trudeau acting like a complete fool he is handing Scheer the election on a silver platter. So let the sock man loose the election all by himself,and sit back and watch it happen
commented 2019-07-03 22:59:31 -0400
Conservatives have themselves to blame for Scheer. He mislead everyone. He said he was against the carbon tax, but purposely left out that he was ‘for’ the Paris targets. That was the moment for Conservatives to jump out of their chairs and demand he be removed for misleading them. But they didn’t.

If it happens again, which I’m sure it will, will you stay silent again?
commented 2019-07-03 22:55:59 -0400
Trudeau suddenly realizes that he wouldn’t look like a dufus if he could control what is said about him. And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is always why dictatorships seek censorship.
commented 2019-07-03 22:35:44 -0400
Donald Trump is brilliant. Not only did his impromptu visit prevent any kind of sabotage that could have been planned had the world known he was going to do this, he also prevented the media from distorting such a historic moment and as well eliminated the media from knowing or attending. Touche!

You can see he was truly moved and humbled by this meeting.
Just brilliant.

Why do you think people are going over to Bernier? If Scheer was doing his job and instilling confidence in the conservative base that he would protect our liberty and our sovereignty, there would be no question of the outcome of this election. None and I put the blame squarely on Scheer’s shoulders. I have no trust that he will come through for this nation. What ever the outcome of this election, we are screwed. It makes no difference which of these clowns gains power. (except if Bernier could get in/not likely).
I am disgusted.
commented 2019-07-03 21:25:05 -0400
I don’t think Andrew Scheer knows how to handle all this.
As you said Ezra, the rate at which this has happened is throwing Scheer off and he has no defense mechanism to counter attack Trudeau.
The liberals are showing just how evil, and I mean evil, they are and stupid Canadians are buying into all the garbage he’s dishing out.
The program ‘Context’ had Patrick Moore on tonight and the host basically shut him off. Context is a Protestant/non-denominational religious type of program and even they are now promoting the liberal agenda.

This is all too frightening.

I wish Stephen Harper was still in the picture to counsel us!
commented 2019-07-03 21:11:25 -0400
Scheer is a Muslim loving Liberal, a plant, flying a false flag. As Trudeau’s Selection deaws closer Scheer will begin to show more of that Liberal Yellow streak that runs down his back.
Ezra should give a free hour of time to Maxime Bernier every night, even if it cost us Rebels two bucks each more a month. The people would soon get to know where to find him. The alternative dose not bear thinking of, unless you are a massochist.
commented 2019-07-03 20:51:56 -0400
This country is in big trouble If Mr Socks gets elected again. Not only massive censorship but the possibility of outlawing the opposition. We live in a scary time.

Bruce said, “If Trudeau wins in October, Andrew Scheer will be to blame.”

Partly, because he is really a CINO, but the split vote will be partly to blame as well.

And if Trudeau wins in October we can expect the push to silence those on the right will be accelerated.

What a depressing thought.
commented 2019-07-03 20:41:53 -0400
I thank God for Trump. He’s done what no other president has done. If only Andrew Scheer had lost the Conservative leadership vote. Then we’d have a dynamic force fighting for us and against the lunatic left.
commented 2019-07-03 20:38:34 -0400
Trudeau is working to stifle the competition and Andrew Scheer is doing nothing. In a truly democratic country, all voices would have access to the public square. But Canada is run by a communist-loving rich kid. If Trudeau wins in October, Andrew Scheer will be to blame. It’s like having somebody break into a house and the owner rolling over and going back to sleep.
