Do Mr. Scheer’s Conservatives really believe in freedom of speech?

To the Editor:

I was happy to read that MP Viersen visited his constituents over the summer and that many of them complained that Liberal policies are making it hard for families to make ends meet.

I was even happier to read that Andrew Scheer will scrap the Trudeau carbon tax.

What I was not happy to learn is that Mr. Scheer will not let Ezra Levant and his Rebel Media reporters cover the upcoming Conservative convention in Halifax.

Ezra Levant’s Rebel Media is one of the few news outlets in Canada that will invite climate change realists, such as myself, on to discuss the science of climate change.

The Conservatives say they will scrap carbon taxes. Andrew Scheer is still talking about the importance of freedom of speech.

But the Conservatives don’t want to give Ezra Levant the freedom to walk around and cover the convention from what I would describe as a “conservative perspective.”

Is Andrew Scheer afraid of handling a few pointed questions from Ezra on his support for the Paris Climate Accord?

Maybe Scheer doesn’t want the Rebel Media reporters to start asking MPs how they are going to scrap carbon taxes and implement a comprehensive GHG emissions plan at the same time?
