The Trudeau government used excessive force and violence to remove a group of peaceful and unarmed protesters in Ottawa. They created a No-Go Zone. 

Police explicitly told journalists to leave the area, and they threatened to arrest anyone found walking down the street in Ottawa. 

How is any of this legal? It isn’t.

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association has condemned this behaviour, saying that: “time and time again, Canadian courts have ruled against exclusion zones and other limits on the press.” 

On today’s episode of the Candice Malcolm Show, Candice is joined by journalist Andrew Lawton who was on the ground reporting all weekend for True North and was himself the victim of police brutalization. They discuss what happened, what it means and what’s next. 



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.
