Issues germane to western Canada have been all but ignored by most political parties and the media during the federal election, with little to no discussion about western alienation, which continues to grow as Alberta heads towards a referendum on equalization in October.

In this edition of the Andrew Lawton Show, True North’s Andrew Lawton spotlights western voices, including entrepreneur and investor W. Brett Wilson, Maverick Party interim leader Jay Hill and Banff–Airdrie Maverick candidate Tariq Elnaga.


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.
