Tonight's episode of The Ezra Levant Show was filmed on location hours before our sold out book launch for China Virus in Edmonton.
I'm in northern Alberta tonight to launch China Virus: How Justin Trudeau's Pro-Communist Ideology Is Putting Canadians in Danger. I've done a lot of book launches — they're fun evenings, it's a chance for me to meet people one-on-one.
Everything went normally until yesterday when the restaurant hosting our event said they've received a tonne of phone-calls and emails, all from the city of Calgary, three hours south of here, from Chinese-Canadians or Chinese foreign nationals threatening the owner to cancel the event.
No one local, no one from the actual community is complaining.
Amazon has already banned China Virus twice. The book is critical of China, and critical of the Chinese Communist Party.
We're seen these aggressive tactics before from Communist operatives.
When Huawei's chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou thought she was going to win her legal battle yesterday in a Vancouver courthouse, we sent Sheila Gunn Reid to report live from British Columbia where she found Communist Party officials photographing the anti-Huawei, pro-Uighur protesters:
I noticed some of the identically dressed men taking pictures of the protesters. I asked some of the protesters if they were worried about themselves and their families back in China, knowing their political activities against the Chinese state are being monitored here on Canadian soil.
This is how China loyalists operate. These are Antifa tactics.
On tonight's show, Keean Bexte and Sheila Gunn Reid will join me for interviews as we prepare for this event.
