Canada’s state broadcaster, CBC, is implementing a racial quota for new senior positions and doubling the rate of promotions for minorities according to a new anti-racism directive aimed at tackling “systemic racism” that CBC says exists within it.

True North’s Andrew Lawton talks about the many flaws with this directive, plus the bizarre story of a Liberian warlord being killed in a small Canadian city.

Also, Christine Van Geyn from the Canadian Constitution Foundation joins the show to talk about the British Columbia government’s unwillingness to release the lawyer bill for lawsuit that’s been going on 10 years.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton 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.
