The tab is in: Canada’s failed attempt at a United Nations Security Council seat cost taxpayers $8.6 million, according to documents obtained by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. True North’s Andrew Lawton explains why it was a waste of money given the Trudeau government’s profoundly unserious foreign policy.

Also, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney defends John A Macdonald against cancel culture, plus Ali Safavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran joins to explain why Iranian dissidents are calling for a boycott of Iran’s upcoming presidential “election.”

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.
