Former Conservative leadership candidate Derek Sloan is being ousted from his party’s caucus after his campaign unknowingly received a small donation from a white supremacist, and Ontario MPP Roman Baber was kicked out of the PC caucus for criticizing Ontario’s lockdown.

True North’s Andrew Lawton takes a look at these political defenestrations, plus a new bureaucracy Justin Trudeau may create to control online content.

Also, Montreal Economic Institute economist Maria Lily Shaw joins the show to discuss how more free speech would actually put more money in Canadians’ pockets.

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.
