Why does Trudeau's disinformation czar plan to sue Rebel News?

A bizarre report by Jean-Christophe Boucher, subject to no academic peer review, said that anyone who promotes 'a specific mistrust of Canada’s Liberal government, and especially of Prime Minister Trudeau' could be flagged as a pro-Russia agent.

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra discussed a legal notice of intention to bring a lawsuit, sent by lawyers for Trudeau's "disinformation" czar, Jean-Christophe Boucher to Rebel News and Ezra personally.

"He's the guy Trudeau pays to accuse Trudeau's political enemies of spreading foreign disinformation," Ezra commented. In a paper Boucher co-wrote titled "Disinformation and Russia-Ukrainian war on Canadian social media," Boucher listed five primary narratives that he characterized as pro-Russian. Among them were "portraying a general mistrust in institutions and elites," and "promoting a specific mistrust of Canada's Liberal government, and especially of Prime Minister Trudeau."

"This is not a report about disinformation," Ezra said, "this report is disinformation."
