A new groundbreaking report reveals that 1,480 Canadians died from 2018 to 2019 while waiting for surgery – including some potentially life-saving treatments.

SecondStreet.org president Colin Craig joins The Andrew Lawton Show to discuss this report, how governments don’t report the more egregious cases publicly and what can be done to address the gaps in Canada’s healthcare system.

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.
