LAWTON: Elections commissioner’s targeting of Rebel is an attack on free speech

True North’s Andrew Lawton reports.

The commissioner of Canada’s elections has launched an investigation into Rebel News over its promotion of The Libranos, a book published by Rebel, even though the law exempts advertising books during election campaigns. This is a very similar investigation to the one launched into Rebel last year over Sheila Gunn Reid’s book about Rachel Notley, which ultimately resulted in a finding that no laws had been broken.
