Justin Trudeau’s government is is paying news outlets to cover climate change – just the latest example of the Liberals cozying up with the press, even when they say they aren’t influencing content. True North’s Andrew Lawton talks about this, as well as Telus’ inexplicable shill for the Liberals.

Also on the show: a tribute to National Post columnist Christie Blatchford, and kudos to Emmanuel Macron for standing up for free speech, even when it’s used to mock religious beliefs.

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.
