It was the best of pandemics, it was the worst of pandemics. An Ontario public health official says because of the variants we’re actually in the midst of two separate pandemics right now, and, of course, that we need another lockdown – one stricter than the previous two – to get through it. True North’s Andrew Lawton exposes the latest shifts of the public health goalposts.

Also, conservatives say they want an election, but is the Conservative Party of Canada ready? Plus, Andrew sits down with independent journalist and activist Aaron Gunn to discuss his potential run for the leadership of the BC Liberals.

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.
