Ezra Levant, the founder of Canada’s conservative Rebel News, explained in a lengthy Twitter thread Tuesday why the Canadian media is so biased against the truckers who are engaging in peaceful protest against vaccine mandates.

Levant argued that the Canadian media are not only biased in favor of the left, as the American media are, but are also highly consolidated and controlled, and have been essentially bought off by government support, enforcing a liberal point of view:

As if to underline Levant’s point, the lead editorial in the Ottawa Citizen, the hometown paper of Canada’s capital city, on which the truckers have converged, is: “Freedom’ truck convoy isn’t the right way to protest.” The paper gave enthusiastic and empathetic coverage to Black Lives Matter protests throughout the city in 2020, in which Prime Minister Trudeau joined.
