Just one day after Nova Scotia killer Gabriel Wortman was taken down by police, Justin Trudeau seized the attack as justification for gun control. True North’s Andrew Lawton talks about Trudeau’s politicization of a tragedy, and why the facts are likely to prove inconvenient for those seeking to restrict legal gun ownership.

Also, a grocery store workers union wants a law restricting how often you can buy groceries, and Professor Jaclyn Schildkraut joins the show to discuss whether the media should deny notoriety to mass killers.

Note: This episode was recorded before the RCMP acknowledged the Nova Scotia killer did not, as Andrew suspected, have a firearms license.

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.
