Former Conservative cabinet minister Lisa Raitt says the ballot issues for Atlantic Canadians are healthcare and affordability. True North’s Andrew Lawton caught up with her in North Sydney, Nova Scotia to discuss whether the Maritimes could go blue, and what would be needed to make it happen.

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.
