Justin Trudeau’s government has reached a deal with the hereditary chiefs who oppose the Coastal GasLink pipeline – except the deal has nothing to do with the pipeline, and the chiefs haven’t even agreed to it yet. This has been nothing but a stalling tactic by the protesters, True North’s Andrew Lawton says.

Also on the show: Brampton wants an Indigenous land acknowledgement at every city-owned facility, and Concordia University dietary researcher Prof. Sylvia Santosa joins to discuss why we should view obesity as a disease and not a choice.

Fan of The Andrew Lawton Show? We’re not getting a government handout like the mainstream media. We rely on Canadians like you! Support the show:

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.
