Tariq Elnaga went to the Calgary Stampede while vacationing in Alberta from his native United Arab Emirates. He fell in love with the west then sold his home and moved to Canada. A decade later, Elnaga says western Canada is getting a raw deal from Ottawa, and he wants to be part of the solution. Banff—Airdrie Maverick candidate Tariq Elnaga joined True North’s The Andrew Lawton Show to share his story and talk about his campaign to be a member of parliament.

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.
