Lawyers representing Freedom Convoy protestors want legacy media outlets like the CBC to take the stand at the Public Order Emergency Commission for what they describe as fake and misleading reporting on the movement earlier this year.

As first reported by Blacklock’s Reporter, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms wants the CEO of CBC, Catherine Tait, to answer for the public broadcaster’s coverage of the convoy.

“The Commission is mandated to investigate misinformation that led to the declaration of emergency. The biggest source of misinformation was the corporate press,” JCCF lawyer Hatim Kheir wrote to the Commission.

Kheir’s submission cited the testimony of Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Supt. Pat Morris who criticized media reporting on alleged extremism and violence that wasn’t substantiated by the facts on the ground.

“Supt. Morris’ evidence made it clear that members of the media were reporting unsubstantiated and false claims. As the head of Canada’s national broadcaster, Ms. Tait should answer questions on her organization’s role in perpetuating misinformation,” explained Kheir.

The request by the JCCF alongside the Democracy Fund and Freedom Corporation comes following a report by the Commission which found that the media played a big role in disseminating inaccurate information about the convoy.

“A question for the Commission would be who the key social media actors were who seeded the convoy movement, both individual and media, and who amplified it,” wrote the report titled Mis-, Dis- and Malinformation And The Convoy: An Examination Of The Role And Responsibilities Of Social Media.

Inaccurate reports spread by the mainstream media at the height of the convoy protests included the far-fetched claim that Russia was involved in organizing the movement.

As exclusively reported by True North earlier this month, CBC Ombudsman Jack Nagler found that the public broadcaster breached its journalistic standards by linking Russia to the Freedom Convoy.

“The fundamental flaw, in my view, was the use of a speculative question when it was not called for,” wrote Nagler.

“Instead, Power & Politics presented its question without attribution. It was not clear to viewers whether anyone was offering evidence that Russia was involved in the convoy – or why they would have such a concern. As*king the question in this way left room for people to surmise that CBC believed such evidence existed.”

Other misleading reports by legacy journalists included allegations that convoy protestors were involved in an unrelated arson attempt at an Ottawa apartment building.

 

THANK YOU!

Thanks to your donations, we can move to the next step.  We have filed to incorporate Awake Canada as a registered non profit charitable organization.  To be transparent, I have posted the receipts below.

For those that do not know why we did this, let me explain.   We are going to start using corporate clout to tackle some of the companies that are violating our rights.  Our first target is Facebook Canada for the unlawful censorship, banning, and shadow banning of Canadian Citizens.  Facebook is a platform, not a publisher.  They can write all the mumbo jumbo they want into their terms and conditions, but it does not excuse them from medical liability if people are harmed by them censoring doctors, and lawyers about what is really going on with Covid.

As a registered member of Awake Canada, if we push to class action, you will be automatically entered into this class action and dismissed if you have not ever had a facebook account.   My lawyer will inform me on this as we move to this process.  We are going to start by placing an injunction on my personal account, removing all bans, and shadow bans, and the Awake Canada facebook page.  Any action they take against this page or the content, will be challenged legally.  Be sure you are a member of that page if you are not.   You can join our Facebook Here.

We are temporarily going to pause donations, until the registration process is complete and a new bank account for Awake Canada is setup.  Separating my personal affairs from this corporation is KEY to being successful in our campaigns.

Stay tuned for further updates!
