True North’s Andrew Lawton, a credible journalist, was able to ask questions to NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh at a campaign event in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Singh was forthright and direct in his answers and the NDP staff was accommodating of the media.
When it comes to freedom of the press, the NDP gets it right. The same can’t be said about the Liberals and Justin Trudeau, who banned Andrew from covering their campaign events.
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.
