Last time we spoke to Banff—Airdrie Maverick candidate Tariq Elnaga he invited us to stop by his ranch if we were ever in the area. So we did. True North’s Andrew Lawton visited Tariq to talk about his Maverick campaign, the western lifestyle, and why the federal government needs to get out of the West’s affairs.

Watch 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.
