You know that federal government carbon tax that causes the price of everything to go up? Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said in a newspaper op-ed that it will create 19,000 jobs.

What she neglected to mention were all the thousands it will eliminate, which was even acknowledged in the report she was citing.

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.
