People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier was arrested, handcuffed and jailed in Manitoba for protesting the province’s COVID restrictions on a speaking tour. He was released Friday night on bail, but will return in July to fight the charges in court. Bernier joined True North’s The Andrew Lawton Show to discuss his tour, arrest, and next steps.

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.
