Canada’s conflict of interest and ethics commissioner found that Justin Trudeau’s pressuring of Jody Wilson-Raybould to interfere in the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin broke the federal ethics rules. That sounds serious because it is. But despite the severity of the finding, such a violation carries no real punishment.

That needs to change, True North’s Andrew Lawton says.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

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.
