Pro-life political action group RightNow says that 1,000 of the 4,000 delegates registered for this weekend’s Conservative Party of Canada convention are from its database, suggesting pro-lifers and social conservatives continue to make up a significant portion of the Conservative party’s base.

RightNow co-founder Scott Hayward tells True North’s Andrew Lawton social conservatives need to get more involved, however, especially with nomination races coming up and a possible spring or summer election.

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.
