Over the past two years, governments have launched “unprecedented attacks” on civil liberties, a new declaration from Canada’s legal community maintains. The Free North Declaration calls on lawyers to restore freedom and the rule of law or “risk losing it for good.” One of the signatories, D. Jared Brown, is a bencher with the Law Society of Ontario. He joined The Andrew Lawton Show to explain why Canadians must reject the “new normal.”

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of 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.
