As Lavscam develops, many seem to be focused on the optics and politics of it all.

True North’s Leo Knight reminds Canadians what this scandal is all about.

The real issue is whether or not the PMO politically interfered with the prosecutorial independence of the Attorney General’s office. This is what Canadians should be concerned about.

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.
