WHITBY—It took two police forces on Monday to get the far-right Rebel Media escorted as far as possible from Andrew Scheer.

The expulsion began with an RCMP officer, part of the Conservative leader's personal security detail, gently nudging Rebel News correspondent David Menzies away from the gaggle of media and out into a corridor as reporters awaited Scheer's arrival.

Then, having reached the border of its jurisdiction — and with Menzies vocally holding court in the hallway, demanding his right to report — the Mounties called in the Durham Regional Police, which finished the job, banishing the rebel to a sidewalk at the outer edge of Whitby's state-of-the-art Abilities Centre.
