NDP MP, Charlie Angus, is calling on Michael Wernick to resign.
Michael Wernick is supposed to be a non-partisan public servant, but his testimony at the justice committee suggested otherwise. We now learn that Wernick will be on the”Critical Election Incident Public Panel”, a government body that will tell Canadians what is “fake news”.
Can we trust him? Can we trust this panel?
True North’s Anthony Furey discusses.
We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.
Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.
How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.
This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
