Truth, lies and the CBC: The full story on the United We Roll Convoy to Ottawa (Guest: Keean Bexte)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

 

The United We Roll Convoy for Canada has made its way to Ottawa, which has mainstream media smear-merchants working over time to discredit the convoy and the pro-pipeline message they brought along for the long ride.

Without speaking to any of them, a Macleans editor called the convoy “white nationalists.”

The CBC said this in a Tweet:

“a convoy of angry Albertans and other westerners rolls into Ottawa today for a mass protest against federal energy and environmental policies that has also become a magnet for extremist, anti-immigrant elements”

With one tweet, CBC managed to make the case for their own defunding while simultaneously proving how elitist they are about the concerns of everyday Albertans.

CBC can't possibly know what people on the convoy are thinking because they haven't been on the convoy, except for a few hundred kilometres. Everything the CBC writes about the mindset of those on the convoy is speculation, laden with anti-blue collar bias, and peppered with a desire to protect Trudeau at all costs.

Only one reporter has been with these folks the entire time, from morning prayers to late night hotel dinners, and that was our Rebel reporter, Keean Bexte.

Keean Bexte joins me tonight to bring us the real news from the United We Roll Convoy for Canada, and to bring us the other side of the story that you won’t see anywhere else in the mainstream media.

Oh, and what, specifically, are you blocking that’s going to Ontario/Quebec that’s going to damage their economy? Ontario’s car exports don’t even really go through Alberta anyway, most are headed to the US. Most of the foreign trade in the east is with the US or Europe.

A trade wall around Alberta affects all of Alberta, but very little of Ontario/Quebec. The damage is highly asymmetrical. it’s just generally strange to suggest the response to lack of trade access is to make it more difficult to trade.

The west has two rail lines that run through. The West, if it separates, could delay tariffs on anything passing through until such time as a pipeline is built. Ontario cars and steel can wait in sidings until the price is paid. "

Or, send them through Panama, the Northwest passage, or the US. 100% of Alberta’s cars are imported, you’d just be hurting yourself with tariffs.

Except that Alberta could still get cars from the US. IT wouldn’t be long term necessity,Just long enough to hurt the Ontario and Quebec economies. The North West Passage is not viable yet and may never be. Panama is a lot more costly than going direct. It would hurt the ON and Que economies a lot more than their own. It would be less costly than having none of Alberta’s oil sold.

Keean got it right when he said there hasn’t been this much anger in the west since Trudeau’s dad was prime minister. I’ve heard so many people say that Ontario and Quebec decide who will be prime minister. I can well believe it since those two provinces hold the bulk of Canada’s population. No wonder there are 2 billboards going up, one in Calgary and the other in Edmonton, calling for Alberta to separate from Canada. Perhaps it’s time for us in the west to play Quebec’s power play of threatening to go our own way. It’ll certainly frighten the dirt out of the dirt bags running this country.

“Let’s do the math.
25000000000 a year / a population of 4.2000000 = 5,952,380. 31
Yes that is correct”

No, it isn’t. 25 billion divided by 4.2 million (which you’ve actually written as 42 million) is 6000, not six million. If you divide a number with nine zeros by one with six zeroes, you get three zeroes. If each Albertan actualy contributed 6 million dollars, the total would be 4 million x 6 million = 24 trillion, which is comparable to the GDP of the entire US.

And, you’re not going to garner a lot of sympathy for the circumstances of the outflow. Should the person making only 50k a year pity the guy making 80, because the latter pays 6000 dollars more taxes? 80k guy is still quite a bit further ahead in that case.

The bone of contention, transfers to Quebec (Ontario became a “have” again in 2017 and will no longer receive equalization starting this year) isn’t meaningful either. They currently have a surplus, the hole left would be barely more than half Alberta’s current gap, per capita.

“Journalistic Standards and Practises”:

Expression of Opinion
Our programs and platforms allow for the expression of a particular perspective or point of view. This content adds public understanding and debate on the issues of the day.

When presenting content (programs, program segments, or digital content) where a single opinion or point of view is featured, we ensure that a diversity of perspective is provided across a network or platform and in an appropriate time frame.

When we choose to present a single point of view:

it is clearly labeled, and
it does not misrepresent other points of view.
Our value of impartiality precludes our news and current affairs staff from expressing their personal opinions on matters of controversy on all our platforms.

Unique Features of Investigative Journalism
Investigative journalism is a specific genre of reporting which can lead to conclusions and, in some cases, strong editorial judgments. A journalistic investigation is usually based on a premise but we do not broadcast an investigative report until we have ensured that the facts and evidence support the conclusions and judgments.

To achieve fairness, we diligently attempt to present the point of view of the person or institution being investigated.


• To act responsibly and to be accountable

We are aware of the impact of our work and are honest with our audiences. We do not hesitate to correct any mistake when necessary nor to follow up a story when a situation changes significantly. We do not plagiarize.

The office of the Ombudsman reviews our practices against the standards set out in these policies. We openly provide the public with the means to judge and hold us to account by sharing with it research we may use to measure the quality and standards of our journalism.

We manage our resources responsibly. We strive for journalistic excellence and best practices in all of our journalistic endeavours.

Our Principles
• Accuracy

We seek out the truth in all matters of public interest. We invest our time and our skills to learn, understand and clearly explain the facts to our audience. The production techniques we use serve to present the content in a clear and accessible manner.

• Fairness

In our information gathering and reporting, we treat individuals and organizations with openness and respect. We are mindful of their rights. We treat them even‑handedly.
• Balance

We contribute to informed debate on issues that matter to Canadians by reflecting a diversity of opinion. Our content on all platforms presents a wide range of subject matter and views.

On issues of controversy, we ensure that divergent views are reflected respectfully, taking into account their relevance to the debate and how widely held these views are. We also ensure that they are represented over a reasonable period of time.

• Impartiality

We provide professional judgment based on facts and expertise. We do not promote any particular point of view on matters of public debate.

• Integrity

The trust of the public is our most valued asset. We avoid putting ourselves in real or potential conflict of interest. This is essential to our credibility.

Keean,perhaps the abuse of our children will be the deciding factor in getting proud Canadians to hit back at these pathetic communist leftists, since abusing our country has not been enough to do it. The 5 stages of communist grief are Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Hitler.

I have the upmost respect and gratitude for all the organizers and participants of the United We Roll Convoy of Canada. It’s just a shame that Antifa attempts to taint a good message and an even bigger shame that over-indulged, entitled JT can’t even acknowledge the effort made by these ordinary Canadians. The message was about Oil and Gas, and I recognize that immigration is a big issue, but this was organized by people working the Oil and Gas industry…. if immigration and other issues by other Yellow Vests was so important maybe they should have planned their own convoy and allow Oil and Gas to have their one small spotlight. Thank you to the Rebel for doing great coverage of the event. Keep up the great work Keean.

THANKS SHEILA , GREAT WORK KEEAN !!!

Excellent show. Keean is a great new team member. Between him and Sheila, the west is well represented and the truth is coming out in full force.
God love the people who participated in the convoy. They are the good people of Canada and it actually makes me feel proud again to be Canadian, a feeling I lost a few years ago.

Keean has proven himself in this convoy as a professional reporter. He had a bit of ordeal with the fascists who roughed him up but he bounced back and did outstanding work. Congratulations for a job well done Keean!

Apparently a few of the trucks in the convoy were white in colour so that was all the proof the CBC/MSM needed in order to label the convoy “white nationalists” displaying “white privilege”

And the drivers were albino….

Until Alberta starts to initiate talks with joining the US or separating the maggot cabal of Laurentian elite globalists won’t give a shit.
Time to play the card Quebec has been playing successfully for 50 years.
You have to remember there is nothing on this earth that the pampered trust fund baby soy boy Trudeau hates more than working class blue collar Albertans especially if you have white skin.
To him you need to be replaced and he is working with the monstrous Soros and UN to do just that.

Compare the cold shoulder for the convoy with the umpteen meetings held with SNC-Lavalin where the PM and his people may have put pressure on the Attorney-General to give them a sweetheart deal. One of the news stories I read the other day said the SNC-Lavalin head office was right in Trudeau’s own riding, which is very definitely NOT in Alberta.

It was great that The Rebel decided to do this. This is the people speaking. The Rebel is the people’s voice. The CBC is the voice of the elitists. This is clear when it comes to how stories like this is covered.

Wonder how it would’ve went down if a GM workers convoy showed up at the steps of parliament-the King FEM would have been waiting on the steps for them to arrive!! The west gets shit on again-time to separate.Check out Alberta fights back.com

They drove ALL the way from Alberta…and the PM or any Ministers would NOT meet with them…

CBC read the Statement from the PMO

Of course they Blamed Harper for NOT building Pipelines…

And just couldn’t resist calling the Yellow Vests…RACISTS

But the GOOD News is…ANTIFA got a pass…from the CBC
