Edmonton pastor James Coates remains behind bars until his trial in May because he refused to stop holding church services the way he always had. Lawyer John Carpay of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms joins True North’s Andrew Lawton to explain why this is not only a blow against religious liberty, but a fundamental rejection of the transparency and evidence the government claims drives its decision-making.

Also, a look at woke television. Plus, Andrew announces a brand new True North documentary series about Justin Trudeau’s assault on Canadian gun owners. Find out more at https://assaulted.ca.

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.
