As Canadians go to the polls Monday, the stakes are high for western industry, especially in the oil and gas sector. True North’s Andrew Lawton sat down in Calgary with entrepreneur and investor W. Brett Wilson to chat about western alienation, the energy sector, and what next week’s election means for both.

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.
