Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister gave a melodramatic, award-worthy performance this week, choking up as he told Manitobans he’s the leader they need, and calling people who question his government’s lockdown measures “idiots” in the same breath as saying “we’re all in this together.” True North’s Andrew Lawton explains how that doesn’t seem to extend to the people being charged for working and worshipping.

Also, how Justin Trudeau has bungled Canada’s COVID-19 vaccine procurement. Plus, president Colin Craig joins the show to talk about the 1,480 Canadians who died on health care waiting lists last year.

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.
