True North’s Andrew Lawton is traveling Canada finding the stories and perspectives the mainstream media isn’t during the federal election campaign. In this podcast, Andrew sits down with award-winning country artist George Canyon, now the Conservative candidate in Central Nova, Nova Scotia, to talk about his decision to turn in performing for politics – sort of.

Canyon talks about how he thinks Justin Trudeau has failed Canada, and also shares some humbling experiences he’s had on the campaign trail in this True North exclusive.

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.
