A former Canadian sniper has triggered a cross-border battle over press freedom, after providing classified information to an American podcaster. Dallas Alexander, a former member of the elite JTF2 unit, released never-before-seen video of a record-setting 'kill shot' during an appearance on the Shawn Ryan Show.

A former Canadian sniper has triggered a cross-border battle over press freedom, after providing classified information to an American podcaster.

The Canadian Armed Forces is demanding not just the removal of the JTF2 video, but also that the two episodes which feature Alexander be removed.In a letter to Shawn Ryan on Feb. 10, a legal adviser with the Canadian Special Forces Command says the podcast contains classified, or sensitive, information, that its public release is “injurious to Canadian national security, national defence and international relations,” and that its unauthorized use amounts to “copyright infringement.

“So to me it seemed like they didn’t care,” said the ex-sniper whose career with the Canadian Forces spanned approximately 17 years. “What is doing is absolutely permissible. The U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled on this back with the Pentagon Papers related to the Vietnam War - that the government can't try to censor journalists or private podcasters like Sean based on any claims of so-called classifications,” said Parlatore, who calls the demands by the CAF “an overreach.”

“From every category of wokeness there was a sensitivity course that came along with it,” Alexander said in the podcast. He identifies as Metis. “I’m getting in administrative trouble because I’m not playing the mask charade,” said Alexander on the podcast. He said he tried to get both a religious and a medical exemption from taking the vaccine but was denied.
