Rebel Media may face fine for billboard slamming Minister David Eggen

EDMONTON—Alberta’s elections commissioner is mulling a $5,500 fine for Rebel Media, accusing the far-right outlet of breaking the rules with a billboard slamming Education Minister David Eggen.

In a letter addressed to Rebel founder Ezra Levant and Alberta-based reporter Keean Bexte — though the letter spells it Keenan Beexte — the commissioner said a billboard the organization put up near Innisfail back in November counted as a political ad, and Rebel did not register as a third-party advertiser.
