Conservative leader Erin O’Toole has unveiled his climate change plan – a rewards program of sorts that taxes Canadians buying hydrocarbon-based fuel and puts the money into a personally-held “savings accounts” for making “green” purchases. True North’s Andrew Lawton breaks it down with Aaron Wudrick of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, which says O’Toole has reneged on a key leadership campaign promise. Also, the latest on the never-ending lockdown and perpetually shifting pandemic goalposts.

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.
