Tucker Carlson, to the applause of his viewers, dared the infamously progressive Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to conduct an interview with him and distribute the recorded interview to a wide audience. The incident transpired in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, while CBC media section correspondents were providing coverage of the occasion. Before vacating the platform, Carlson, who was on stage with Alberta Premier Danielle Smith, addressed the CBC.

"Always allow me to say one final word. "You stated that CBC is present in the room," Carlson inquired with a sly grin. "I am extremely interested in conducting an interview with CBC." Confront me in the backstage area. You presume to air it on television."
During a previous segment of his appearance, Tucker Carlson attacked Chrystia Freeland, the Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, by making fun of her "high self-esteem." Following his reminiscences of knowing Freeland during her early career as a journalist, he proceeded to offer a critique of her former position at the Financial Times.
"Purely put, her self-esteem remained unpatrolled." "It appeared to be bomb-proof," Carlson joked, much to the glee of the audience. "You could survive a nuclear bomb detonation on your town by hiding beneath Chrystia Freeland's self-esteem." Essentially nothing could be done to dislodge it. "Naturally nothing."
In addition to a standing ovation from the audience, Carlson was greeted like a rock star as he descended the stage. Following his unanticipated dismissal from Fox News a year ago, Tucker Carlson has experienced a surge in prominence, establishing himself as a prominent figure on X (previously referred to as Twitter) and accumulating millions of views on his videos. In addition to conducting interviews with celebrities, newsmakers, and personalities, he has written about a vast array of policies and issues.
His ability to deliver engaging and controversial commentary, coupled with his charismatic demeanor, continues to captivate audiences worldwide, including those in the United States.
