Rebel News reporters assaulted, not protected by police — Why we need security more than ever

Tonight's show is a little different.

As some of you may know, the far-left movement to tear down statues and set up "autonomous zones" — that is, lawless squatting camps — in American cities is now creeping into Canada.

For the last week, we've had David Menzies on the scene in Kingston, where a statue of Sir John A. Macdonald was the target.

Then one of our newer reporters, Andrew Says, ventured down to city hall in Toronto, to report on the anti-police encampment.

In both cases, not only were our reporters harassed and man-handled, but the police did nothing to protect them.

In fact, police and security guards seemed to be protecting the lawless activists.

We've been obligated to hire larger security details each time.

TONIGHT I'll explain why Rebel News will continue to report on these demonstrations.

It's our right to do so under the Charter, whereas the groups we're reporting on are the ones breaking the law, and violating our rights.

With police under orders to avoid conflict, we have no choice but to increase our security measures when reporting on the ground.

And this protection comes at a price.

If you can, please help us out at JournalistDefenceFund.com so we can continue to protect our reporters, and keep bringing you the other side of the story.

On tonight's show, David Menzies is my guest, to talk about what's been going on as we try to bring you the news.

Tomorrow, we'll have a brand new video you won't want to miss:

I went down to Toronto City Hall myself, to see what kind of treatment our reporters are getting, and try to understand the response from police and private security.
