It’s Festivus today, which means it’s time to air some grievances!

True North’s Andrew Lawton says as polarization increases it’s important to reject political tribalism, which means recognizing people on “your side” can screw up, and people you disagree with politically are capable of saying and doing good things.

Andrew points out the Conservative party’s treatment of Michael Cooper, and former Liberal MPs Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott standing up with integrity, as examples.

Support True North by joining Andrew’s Heritage Club:

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.
