Equating Nazi's atrocities to this is a tad dramatic. I'm pretty sure the evil RCMP won't be knocking down my door because I disagreed with Justin's wisdom :P

If you're thinking that Justin Trudeau is some kind of mastermind, along the lines of Godfather Vito Corleone, then you'd be wrong.

Justin is as dumb as a post. At least, Don Vito could come up with various schemes that could never be traced back to him--it was his patsies that he set up to take the fall. Justin Trudeau cannot muster enough brain cells to do that. Oh, he can try to shut down Rebel News, but he will be unsuccessful under our Charter. Justin is not a dictator. But he's still dumb as a post.

As for Rebel News, I'll grant that there may be two dozen--oh hell, I'll be generous, make it three dozen--Canadians who take it seriously. Ezra Levant, its founder, is a well-known right-wing s**t disturber, who has already run one right-wing magazine (the Western Standard) and one TV channel (SunTV) into the ground with right-wing BS, so he starts up "Rebel News." Which few Canadians know about, and those that do, tend to ignore it. The only way Rebel News gets any attention is by pulling stunts like this. And not surprisingly, Canadians continue to ignore them.

Rebel News is not news. It is right-wing opinion, and being mostly opinion, does not deserve press accreditation, as it does not report hard news. As such, it is a source that most Canadians would disregard, assuming they knew about it, which they don't. OP, you're gonna have to try harder if you expect to get a rise out of the Canadians here.

If you want to get a rise out of Canadians, tell them you prefer Vermont maple syrup.

Reise, Reise is about mutiny on a ship, and the opening song of the 2004/05 Ahoi! Tour.

Reise, Reise Seemann Reise

Arise, arise seaman arise

Good Lord!
This here woman is totally okay with it. The only mistakes the policeman made was in letting the reporter get anywhere close to Freeland in the first place and for that he should be reprimanded and demoted or re-assigned or whatever ..... and he used the wrong word. Instead of using the word assault he should have used the word accostment. That reporter didn't physically assault anyone but he is guilty of accostment - with a video to prove it - and that's not okay. Look up accostment if you don't know what it means.

In case you haven't noticed Freeland is a tiny little woman and that big strong cowardly bully of a man accosted Freeland aggressively, raised his voice at her, tried to intimidate her with his size, got in her space and her face, got in front of and tried to impede and stop her progress as she was walking to work, tried to force her to make eye contact and to respond verbally to him. That's not okay. It's abusive behaviour. It's accostment.

In fact if it had been me there in Freeland's high heeled shoes that she wears to give her some height, the reporter would still be regretting it every year for the rest of his life as he gets examined for new corrective glasses every year. Freeland can't do what I would do because of who she is and the position she represents, so she has to rely on security personnel to keep her safe from the big strong cowardly bully-boys who like to try to intimidate her. But if that had been me being accosted by a cowardly man like she was accosted, and with me also being a tiny little woman just like she is, and me fearing for my safety and my life - that bad man would have gotten a face full of full strength vinegar sprayed directly into his face and eyes. I keep the little spritzer bottle of vinegar handy for some of the bad dogs around here when I'm out gardening, but vinegar works just as well on bad, cowardly bully-boys trying to intimidate tiny little women as it does on bad dogs.
