The Conservative caucus voted to eject former leadership candidate Derek Sloan today after a lengthy meeting and secret vote. Conservative leader Erin O’Toole initiated the process Monday after it was revealed Sloan unknowingly received a campaign donation from a white supremacist, though O’Toole now says it was because of a “pattern of destructive behaviour.”

Sloan joined True North’s Andrew Lawton moments later to explain what happened, and what comes next.

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.
