Conservative MP Michael Cooper pushed back against a justice committee witness who said “conservative commentators” inspire violent attacks like the one at a Quebec City mosque, by reading the words of a mass shooter who said he disavowed conservatism. In response, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer kicked Cooper off of the committee, caving to the left-wing mob and accepting, rather than fighting, the Left’s false claims.

True North’s Andrew Lawton says Scheer’s decision was “cowardly.”

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.
