Viewers may recall that around this time last year, we started a fund-raising drive for soldiers and their families at Camp Borden north of Toronto after being tipped off about a story in the Borden Citizen entitled “Seasonal Sharing Basket Campaign.”
Initially we thought soldiers and their families after already giving so much, were now giving to Christmas hampers for families in need, but no.
The fundraising initiative wasn’t to help strangers at the homeless shelter, but rather, for CFB soldiers who are so poor they can’t afford to feed their own families.
That’s when The Rebel Media, with the help of generous viewers, set out to raise $10,000 for the CFB Borden food hamper, and as always you came through, donating MORE than $15,000!
But a funny thing happened on the way to CFB Borden. What was meant to be a feel-good photo-op of the cheque delivery, turned into the opposite when the money was rejected.
We had no intention of keeping your generous donations, so we sought out another military charity and found an excellent charity called Canada Company.
They accepted our donation and then on the way back to Rebel HQ, it seems Canada Company inexplicably suffered some form of buyer’s remorse. They too rejected our cheque and also asked that we destroy the videotaped cheque presentation!
Puzzled and perplexed, we sought answers by filing a freedom of information request and now we know that when it comes to little ol’ Rebel raising cash for our soldiers, the bureaucrats at the Department of National Defence seem consumed with fear and paranoia.
Watch as I show you what we found in over 100 pages of transcripts of strategy sessions by DND bureaucrats who, like Batman trying to dispose of a bomb, were beside themselves looking for a way to handle YOUR act of generosity for our beloved soldiers.

Sign it and tell the Trudeau Liberals that it is not acceptable to cut 8-figure cheques to convicted terrorists while our patriotic soldiers must rely on food hampers.
We’re still working on getting your generous donations to a good veterans charity, despite Justin’s interference, so stay tuned for further announcements, and thank you again for all your generous support.
