Ezra Levant is a human rights activist, author, TV host and dad. He is not to everyone's taste.
In 2014, Ezra was chosen as the “most irritating Canadian” by the Globe and Mail’s TV critic. The Globe’s readers were less discriminating, voting Ezra “the biggest name in Canadian broadcasting”. In the 2014 Hill Times survey of Parliament Hill staff he was voted "talking head you'd most like to silence" by an overwhelming margin.
It's not all bad news, though. In 2009, Ezra wrote a best-selling book called Shakedown: How Our Government is Undermining Democracy in the Name of Human Rights. That book was selected by the Writer’s Trust as the best Canadian political book in 25 years, though that sounds like a clerical error. Ezra went on to write other books, including Ethical Oil: The Case for Canada’s Oilsands, which won the 2011 National Business Book Award, and The Enemy Within: Terror, Lies and the Whitewashing of Omar Khadr. His latest book is Groundswell: The Case for Fracking, was nominated for the 2015 National Business Book Award.
Against his will, Ezra has learned all the songs to the movie, Frozen.

That jet is old, to be sure. But it’s newer than the CF-18s that our Canadian fighter pilots use. And Trudeau has said he’s ruling out the F-35 replacement, because Trump doesn’t like Trudeau’s subsidies to Bombardier. Say, do you think the odd CF-18 has a “loose wire” or a “flashing gauge”? Of course. But do you see CTV going to the wall to get new planes for them? GUESTS Joel Pollak and Sheila Gunn Reid
