A violent union activist assaulted The Rebel’s Sheila Gunn Reid today outside the United Conservative Party’s Annual General Meeting in Calgary.

Gunn Reid, who was attempting to cover the protestors, was punched in the back and hit with sticks.

True North’s Candice Malcolm caught up with Gunn Reid after the assault.

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.
