Erin O’Toole’s mid-campaign reversal of his previous support of conscience rights for healthcare practitioners compromises one of the two promises he made to social conservatives in an effort to win the Conservative leadership just one year ago. Pro-life writer and activist Jonathon Van Maren joined The Andrew Lawton Show to weigh in on social conservatives’ place in O’Toole’s Conservative party.

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.
