Manitoba election called — and social media censorship begins (Guest: Marty Gold)

Manitoba's Conservative Premier Brian Pallister has called an election.

Manitobans go to the polls on September 10, a full year and one month sooner than scheduled. The reason for the election call is strange: the Conservative government is seeking another mandate because they say they have fulfilled all their election promises.

Could this have to do with polling numbers or the federal election?

And, much like the rest of the country, as an election approaches, so does social media censorship of news.

My guest tonight, Marty Gold, is an independent journalist in Manitoba and editor in chief at, whose in depth analysis of the failure of Winnipeg’s drug harm reduction strategy was removed (actually censored) by Facebook. It was flagged as fake news.

But the censorship doesn’t stop there. Tonight, Gold shares the story of how a pro-Israel speaker was nearly deplatformed by left wing activists in Winnipeg.
