I have called in to Justin Trudeau’s press conference hotline every day for a month. But as soon as I tell the operator who I am, they just keep me holding on the phone line, never putting my questions through.
I’ve listened to literally hundreds of softball questions from the same handful of Media Party reporters. But Trudeau's gatekeepers refuse to take questions from me or any other independent journalist.
So we sued Trudeau — or more precisely, we sued his Privy Council Office. That’s the government office in charge of running the civil service, and they’re supposed to be doing it in a neutral, non-partisan way.
Well today at 2:30 p.m. ET, our lawsuit goes before a “case management judge” in a special phone conference.
The judge won’t hear the merits of the case today, but she’ll make an order about how the case will be heard.
We want an urgent hearing — just like we did last October, when Trudeau’s staff banned us from reporting on the election debates. Back then, we rushed to court with just hours to spare, and we won.
Today our lawyers will make the argument that this nearly-identical case of censorship needs to be dealt with urgently — while Trudeau is still conducting his “self-hiding” press conferences every morning.
It’s in the public interest that he be asked probing questions — and only independent journalists like us at Rebel News can do that, because we’re one of the few media outlets not taking Trudeau’s big bail-out.
So wish us luck!
We’ll let you know how it goes. And if you can help us cover the costs of this lawsuit, I’d be very grateful.
I was shocked to learn that Trudeau was putting not one, not two, but THREE government lawyers on the case! Trudeau will literally spare no expense (out of taxpayers’ money) to stop us from asking him questions. Of course, we rely 100% on our viewers to pay for our legal costs.
