“A federal court judge in Toronto said Rebel Media and the True North Centre for Public Policy successfully established that they would suffer “irreparable harm” if denied access to the English-language leaders’ debate taking place in Gatineau, Que., and its French-language equivalent later this week.
Justice Russel Zinn ordered the Leaders’ Debates Commission to provide accreditation to the three men the commission had previously rejected, but said he would release his reasons for the ruling at a later date.
Ezra Levant, one of Rebel’s founders and its main personality, celebrated the judgment on Twitter. “We won! We won! Freedom won! Canada won! Journalism won!” he wrote.”
