WATCH: female conservative journalist assaulted in Alberta by left-wing protestor
A female conservative journalist has been assaulted in Calgary by a left-wing protestor outside the United Conservative Party’s Annual General Meeting in Calgary.
According to a post made by the company’s main Twitter profile, Sheila Gunn Reid was assaulted while attempting to cover the protestors outside the event.
The event involved speeches by the NDP and included members from the Federation of Labour.
In response to the attack, Rebel Media has put out a $1,000 reward for anyone who can identify the assailant.
This is not the first time a journalist in Canada has been assaulted for their work. In 2018, a Toronto Sun photographer was assaulted by antifa members for doing his job. In 2017, Gunn Reid herself was assaulted, leading to a conviction and civil suit.
The Post Millennial reached out to Gunn Read, who said, “No one attempted to help me, in fact, the protesters continued to chant at us that we were Nazis after we were assaulted. CTV had a news truck sitting on the street running right beside where it all happened. It is evident in our footage from the incident.
This is the second time that this sort of thing has happened to me in an NDP protest and no NDP politician has ever renounced the violence against me. The NDP needs to dial down their rhetoric before somebody is seriously hurt.”
Bill Peters has resigned as the head coach of the NHL’s Calgary Flames after former player, Akim Aliu, accused him on racism on social media, according to Sportsnet.
The Calgary Flames’s general manager, Brad Treliving, made these comments during a press conference. During this, he also stated that Geoff Ward would take over as the interim coach.
Aliu accused Peters on Twitter of directing a racial slur towards the player “several times” when they were both in the AHL. Peters was Aliu’s coach during his time at the Rockford IceHogs.
After Aliu’s tweets, Peter’s released an apology, although he did not direct it specifically to Aliu.

The major Canadian oil company Husky Energy has announced hundreds of layoffs in the country.
According to Bloomberg, Husky Energy Inc will be laying off hundreds of workers Tuesday as the company has been bracing for impact on oil production and low pricing.
“Today we did have to say goodbye to some of our colleagues. Husky has been taking steps to better align the organization and workforce with our capital plan and strategy,” said Kim Guttormson, a spokesperson for the company.
Most of the job losses will affect western Canada, a majority being in Calgary.
Last year, Husky redirected $300 million of this year’s budget to brace for the ailing oil sector and are expecting to see a 10 percent decrease in annual capital spending.
