There’s no other way to put it – the Liberal government’s new “hate speech” bill is an attack on free speech. The bill restores the previously-repealed section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, which allows the Canadian Human Rights Commission to target those whose online speech “is likely to foment detestation or vilification.” True North’s Andrew Lawton says free speech must be the hill to die on, and breaks down the legal implications with Canadian Constitution Foundation litigation director Christine Van Geyn.

Also, Epoch Times columnist Fergus Hodgson joins the show to talk about the economic danger of Canada’s “net zero” climate target.

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.
