Justin Trudeau has prorogued parliament for a little over a month, despite calling prorogation an assault on democracy when the Conservatives took similar action. Trudeau says it’s different when he does it, however. Yes, because it means halting an investigation into the Liberals’ cozy relationship with WE Charity, True North’s Andrew Lawton says.

Also, Bill Morneau is out as finance minister and Chrystia Freeland is in, plus, a preview of True North’s Conservative leadership election coverage plans.

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.
