| COVIS Stalinism: : Couple SEGREGATED and FINED $25,000 at Toronto airport upon return from Florida work trip|
Last month, William O’Kane and Kim Green packed their bags and flew down to Florida so that Kim could partake in a working interview at a potential new job. It was an exciting opportunity for the couple and their family. Relocating to Florida would mean that they could escape Ontario, one of the most locked-down places in the world, and start a better life in Florida, where individual civil liberties are still respected and protected. The difference between Ontario and Florida couldn’t be starker, and that difference was further punctuated by the couple’s experience arriving back in Canada.
Upon their arrival at Pearson International Airport in Toronto, William and Kim were immediately segregated and given a blue sticker indicating that they weren’t vaccinated. It was a humiliating experience, but that was just the start of their long ordeal to get back home. William and Kim were then interrogated by public health workers about their quarantine plans and scolded for not submitting to a second PCR test.
They refused to comply every step of the way and were eventually permitted to go home, but not before receiving four tickets worth $6,255 — a grand total of $25,020! I interviewed William and Kim about their experience — here’s what they told me: How did Canada devolve into a technocratic medical police state so quickly? Digital tracking, segregation, and invasive medical testing should not be required for anyone arriving in Canada. And refusing to take part certainly shouldn’t warrant $25,000 worth of fines.
That’s why we’re going to fight on behalf of William and Kim, not just to help them but to set a precedent that such violations of our Charter rights will not be tolerated.

COVID jails legal battle: Rebel News, JCCF suing to end mandatory quarantine programme
- By Sheila Gunn Reid
- June 01, 2021
Today in federal court in Toronto, lawyers for Rebel News, alongside lawyers from the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, are suing the federal government to put an end to Justin Trudeau’s illegal and unconstitutional COVID jail system.
Healthy Canadians arriving by air, who already tested negative for COVID before flying, have been required to quarantine for three days at the cost of thousands of dollars while they await a second PCR test upon landing in Canada. Upon the results of that second PCR test, these healthy COVID-free people are then required to finish out a 14-day quarantine at home.If travellers don’t submit to arbitrary COVID detention, which appears to be up to the discretion of the health agents at the border, or a second COVID test upon arrival, these law-abiding Canadians then face thousands of dollars in fines and possible jail time. Completely healthy people are being arrested, detained and — as we found out today in court — denied the knowledge that they have a right to contact a lawyer, all in the name of “two weeks to flatten the curve.”
That’s exactly what happened to former Rebel News journalist Keean Bexte, who travelled to Florida on assignment for Rebel News. Upon his arrival back in Calgary, Keean was taken to a COVID jail hotel, despite having the ability to quarantine alone, his own mode of transportation to his location of quarantine, and a negative PCR test before he got on his plane back to Canada.
Even worse, these quarantine measures don’t apply to travellers who are arriving back to Canada by land. Apparently, the federal government presumes that so-called variants of concern only travel via airplane. But in fact, the government provided no evidence of the variants of concern entering via plane in their affidavits.
Rebel News will be following the case over the next three days, providing video updates and live tweeting the proceedings.
Law-abiding Canadian citizens are allowed to travel in and out of our country. They shouldn’t be punished financially by being sent to an overpriced COVID hotel, and denied their liberty and security of person just for trying to come home.
The federal government has limitless resources to fight Rebel News in court, but we think freedom is worth it. We’ve got great lawyers from JSS Barristers working on the case, including Sarah Miller, who is also working on our Charter challenge to the lockdown in Saskatchewan and representing Pastor Artur Pawlowski in Calgary.
Banned from Press Conference for “Security Reasons” — the Catch-All Excuse for Tyrants
Shocking City of Toronto Employees Surveille & Compile a Dossier on Rebel Media for Covering Lawless Occupation of City Hall Square
Remember that delightful encounter we had with those “peaceful” protesters that occurred back in June?
In case you don’t recall, here’s an abbreviated backstory: Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square had been taken over by a collective of ne’er-do-wells known as Afro Indigenous Rising. And I do mean taken over. Think of this group as a poor man’s version of Antifa and/or Black Lives Matter.
Par for the course, they were vulgar and violent and their makeshift tent city was filthy. Oh, and they were also breaking some 11 sections of the Trespass to Property Act. (Even though it took authorities weeks to enforce it…)
When Rebel News went to the square to report, given that it was clear the mainstream media would be sitting this one out due to political correctness, our staff were physically assaulted. But even worse, City Hall security sided with the lawbreakers, actually charging us with trespassing. Yes… trespassing on the public square… a public square that had been surrendered to thugs…
We never did bend the knee. And even though the squatters didn’t want us there, nor the security guards, nor the police, we stood our ground and reported on the chaos at City Hall nevertheless.
But get a load of this: we recently issued a Freedom of Information request regarding this shameful story, and we were shocked to find out that the city had compiled an almost 300-page long dossier — not on the thugs, but on Rebel News staff, complete with bios, spy photographs, and personal information.
The emails that city employees sent back and forth regarding our reporting were astonishing. You see, it became clear that the goal from the get-go was not to remove the violent squatters (who the bureaucrats continually refer to as “peaceful protesters”), but rather to come up with schemes that would limit freedom of the press!
But that’s how they roll in John Tory’s sanctuary city — reward the takers; penalize the makers.
In the meantime, the question arises: why was the city compiling such a database on journalists who were simply practicing journalism? Who has access to this database? And what will it be used for in the future?
Looks like we’ll have to issue yet more Freedom of Information requests to find out
Antifa informant exposed: Schoolteacher Kurt Phillips of Drumheller
Posted by Keean Bexte on January 11, 2020
In a show of incompetence, the CBC’s 5th Estate has accidentally released the identity of a longtime Antifa informant. This is someone who works with, employs, and shares information with the members and supporters of the violent Antifa movement: Schoolteacher Kurt Phillips.
The CBC was intending to cooperate with Phillips to conceal his identity, however when facial images were matched up, none other than Kurt Phillips, a Catholic School teacher in Drumheller Alberta was exposed as the mastermind behind ARC Collective.
ARC is a blog that was curated by Phillips until he recently resigned after his mask was removed. Phillips’ blog has shared the personal information, addresses, photos of homes, names, and faces of people who Phillips unilaterally determines are “fascists”.
Rebel News sent Phillips a list of questions with hopes to get his side of the story, however they were ignored. The school was quick to stand by Phillips – Principal JoAnne Akerboom insists Phillips is politically neutral and doesn’t bring his personal activism to the classroom. Tweets posted by an account bearing his name and photo appear to contradict the assertion he is neutral.
As for personal activism in to the classroom, that also seems to be untrue, as Phillips’ blog routinely posts defamatory content, during hours he is supposed to be teaching students. One might wonder how much taxpayer funded time Phillips is using to research, write, edit, and publish information that is fed to Antifa, an organization the President has considered labeling a terrorist group.
GOOD NEWS: I’ve found a way to stop leftist bullies from cancelling conservative events!
November 19, 2019 — Ezra Levant:
Last month, left-wing bullies — including a university professor and an NDP politician — pressured a theatre into cancelling my book-signing event.
I had a contract with the theatre, I paid them in advance, everything was set to go. But then an online mob harassed the theatre owner until he breached his contract with me, cancelled the event and literally locked the doors.
So last week I sued him for breach of contract. (He still hasn’t even given me the money back for the theatre rental.)
But I did something new: I sued all of the bullies, too. At least the ones I could identify — the ones who were leading the mob on social media.
We’re suing them for inducing the breach of contract.
They knew we had a contract with the theatre; they helped cause the breach of the contract, and we lost thousands of dollars because of it. So that’s what’s new here. We’re not letting the mob go. We’ve identified members of the mob. And we’re suing them.
Read the lawsuit for yourself — it’s written in plain English. You can read it below. It was written by our great free speech law firm in Edmonton, as a way to preserve our freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and freedom of association. Those rights were trampled by the bullies — so we’re fighting back.
Right before he ripped up the contract with me, the theatre owner told me the threats against him were so bad, he was literally losing sleep over it. I still don’t think he should have cancelled it. But don’t you think someone has to tell those bullies they’re wrong?
If they don’t see it, maybe they need a judge to tell them. So we filed the lawsuit last week, and we’ve begun serving it on the bullies — who include a university professor and a former NDP politician.
I’ve just received our first bill from the law firm — it’s for $4,700. Obviously this trial will cost much more than that, probably more than $100,000 by the time it’s all done. We’re suing at least 12 people.
Obviously we’re not doing this to make money. We’re doing it to stop deplatforming in Canada — against us, against anyone, against you.
If you think this is a good idea, and want to help, please give us a hand to pay our lawyers. You can chip in right here on this page — ten dollars, a hundred dollars, whatever you can. We need the help, and I’d be very grateful.

SHOCK: Andrew Scheer has Rebel News reporter David Menzies arrested, handcuffed at campaign event
I cannot believe it.
We sent David “The Menzoid” Menzies to report from an Andrew Scheer campaign event. Like we normally do.
CBC journalists were welcomed. But David was kicked out.
They said David wasn’t “accredited”. Really? David’s been an accredited journalist for 30 years — he’s covered hundreds of political events from parties of every stripe.
Why would Scheer kick out David, but welcome the CBC — who despise the Conservatives?
None of this makes sense.
Anyways, David left the property. He went to the public sidewalk. He started filming a video about being kicked out. And then he was swarmed by police.
And this time, they arrested him and handcuffed him.
Why did they do that?
Who ordered them to do that?
He as on the sidewalk.
He’s a man in his fifties with two artificial hips. He’s not a screaming Antifa thug; he’s not a trespasser.
They handcuffed him. Why? To humiliate him?
They finally took off his cuffs and he called me. But then more police came and took away his phone. I immediately called a lawyer. Within an hour, the police let him go, without any charges.
But their point was made: don’t you dare try to ask questions of our political elites. Or the police will arrest you.
Well, point not taken.
I can tell you one thing: today’s outrageous treatment of David Menzies will not stop us from doing our jobs.
I’ll be candid, we’re more used to Justin Trudeau banning us — and Rachel Notley before she was fired by voters. It says more about them than it does about us. Actually it does say something about us: we ask questions that politicians would rather not be asked.
Can you please help us? We need your help.
There are three things you can do:
1. Tell your local conservative candidate that this is nuts.
It’s a Trudeau move, not a conservative move. Ask your Conservative candidate if they think it’s wise to have police arrest the only conservative-leaning video company in Canada. Frankly, no reporter of any stripe should be arrested. This is Canada.
2. Second, sign our petition to Andrew Scheer at LetUsReport.com.
It’s just what it sounds like. Let Us Report — just like Scheer lets the CBC report. We need to show him that Canadians — especially Conservatives — believe in free speech and freedom of the press. Maybe he’s been hanging out in Ottawa too long to remember that.
3. Please help us keep on reporting, no matter who kicks us out.
I just got off the phone with David, and I’ve told him to keep asking Andrew Scheer questions. Not gotcha questions, but real questions — the kind the CBC would never ask him. Questions like these:
• Justin Trudeau’s campaign platform calls for new political censorship of the Internet. Do you support or oppose this?
• If elected, would you end the $600 million newspaper bail-out?
• If elected, would you privatize the CBC?
• What do you think the optimum number of immigrants is each year for Canada?
• …and so many more.
Those aren’t trick questions. They’re questions any conservative should answer. But they’re questions that only Rebel News would ask. I mean, can you really see a CBC journalist pressing Scheer about ending the bail-out?
My goal as the publisher of Rebel News is to do journalism — to tell the other side of the story. Most of the time, that means asking accountability questions of the Liberals, NDP and Greens, because the mainstream media never does.
We lean conservative here at Rebel News, and we wear our heart on our sleeves — we want Trudeau gone. I just wrote the best-selling book called The Libranos: What the media won’t tell you about Justin Trudeau’s corruption. I think it’s clear what I stand for.
But that doesn’t mean we’re going to let Scheer become like Trudeau. Having police arrest David Menzies was a Trudeau move, not a move any conservative should be proud of. Actually it’s worse — I’ve never actually seen Trudeau have someone arrested, have you?
You can help us at LetUsReport.com. Sign our petition to Scheer to let us report. And then you can click on the link on that page to see all of our campaign plans and our budget there. We’re spending thousands of dollars flying David and our other journalists around the country, covering political events.
Andrew Scheer might think he’s at war with us, but we’re not at war with him. We just want to be able to do our job — and we will, whether he likes it or not.
So help us out — visit LetUsReport.com to sign the petition to Scheer. And if you want us to keep on going, and if you want Scheer to stop acting like Trudeau, you can chip in a few bucks, too. Please click here to help us out.
Let’s remind Andrew Scheer: he’s trying to replace Trudeau, not become him.
P.S. Please sign our petition at LetUsReport.com. I always worried about a government crackdown on our free speech. I just never thought it would come from the Conservative Party.
