Justin Trudeau’s security prevented The Counter Signal’s Editor-in-Chief Keean Bexte from getting anywhere near him on Wednesday, while Bexte was waiting for the Prime Minister outside a building.

After being threatened with arrest if he remained in the vicinity, Bexte was followed by three of Trudeau’s security officers, who proceeded to block his vehicle in an apparent show of intimidation, while surrounding him in a slow roll.

Bexte later posted to social media: “WTF: Trudeau’s guards had me removed from the SAIT campus while I peacefully waited to ask him questions about the Carbon Tax hike. After removing me, 3 police vehicles followed my car and cornered me on the highway so I couldn’t go home. Insane behavior from a desperate tyrant.”

Along with True North journalists, The Counter Signal isn’t given access to ask the Prime Minister questions during his official media scrums.

Bexte told RCMP officers he wanted to ask the Prime Minister about his planned near 20% carbon tax increase that’s set for April 1, when the pollution tax will go from $65 per tonne of carbon emissions to $80.

Seven out of ten Premiers have asked Trudeau to pause his increase while many Canadians are struggling economically.

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, Ontario Premier Doug Ford, Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston, New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs, PEI Premier Dennis King, and even Newfoundland’s Liberal Premier, Andrew Furey, have all issued statements asking the federal Liberals to pause their planned hike.

More to come.
