The People’s Party of Canada tripled its vote share from the 2019 election, and is facing accusations of being a “spoiler” in a number of Conservative ridings. True North’s Andrew Lawton says the PPC support was much broader than just traditional Conservative voters, so this narrative doesn’t hold up. Also, Conservative activist and former campaign manager Fraser Macdonald joins to discuss his petition supporting Erin O’Toole’s continued leadership of the Conservatives. Plus, the perils of identity politics.

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.
