The Andrew Lawton Show is shining a spotlight on western alienation and the push for Alberta independence. True North’s Andrew Lawton spent last weekend at Freedom Talk in Calgary, a conference exploring the growing frustrations from people in the west, and possible solutions to the Confederation crisis.

In this first episode of a two-part series on western alienation, Andrew sits down with MLA Drew Barnes, who wrote a dissent against his own government’s Fair Deal Panel report, and Paul Hinman, a former MLA who has come out of political retirement to lead the Wildrose Independence Party.

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.
