Ontario member of provincial parliament Belinda Karahalios was kicked out of Premier Doug Ford’s PC caucus after she voted against a bill that would bypass the Ontario legislature and give the government authority to act through emergency orders for up to two years. While the bill has been harshly criticized by civil liberties advocates, PC MPPs were whipped to support it.

Karahalios joins The Andrew Lawton Show to discuss her expulsion from caucus and rationale for opposing the bill. Also, Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms president John Carpay sits down with Andrew to talk about constitutional challenges facing lockdown measures such as social distancing tickets and mandatory mask orders.

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.
