Our Rebel News team is back from Davos, Switzerland, where we covered the World Economic Forum's annual meeting. It's there, high in the Swiss Alps, that WEF chairman Klaus Schwab brings together powerful politicians, business leaders and civil society organizations to plot and pitch plans for furthering the goals of globalization.  

While we were on the ground covering the summit, we published so many stories that we wanted to provide a montage of some of the best moments in case you happened to miss them.

Ezra Levant put questions to investment firm State Street's CEO, Ron O'Handley, about the company's commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies.

The Rebel News boss was joined by Chief Australian Correspondent Avi Yemini as the pair pressed Richard Hatchett, CEO of Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, the WEF's vaccine and infectious disease division, about planning for future pandemics.

Levant caught up with U.S. Senator Chris Coons, a Democrat from Delaware, and asked him what he thought of former president Donald Trump's stunning victory in Iowa's Republican caucus and his outlook on a looming rematch between President Joe Biden and Trump.

Plus, the pair had an entertaining exchange with CNN host Richard Quest, who was certainly more keen to be the one asking questions.

The duo also ran into American musician Will.i.am, who shared his thoughts on free speech and if — or when — people should be censored.

Yemini and Levant walked-and-talked with Mark Carney, a former governor of the banks of Canada and England, and a rumoured candidate for the next leader of the Liberal Party, weighed in on a number of issues, including the arrest of Rebel News reporter David Menzies as he questioned Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland.
