As the Conservative party reckons with its future, which includes selecting a conservative leader, it’s worth exploring just how big that oft-cited big, blue tent is. For example, can social conservatives and libertarians get along?

True North’s Andrew Lawton, who identifies with both groups on several issues, says yes. But it means an important discussion about political priorities needs to take place.

True North is offering a voice and a perspective the mainstream media isn’t. If you think this is important, please do support our efforts, as our only funding comes from people who believe in what we’re doing:

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.
