Former federal Progressive Conservative leader and Quebec Liberal premier Jean Charest is seeking the Conservative Party of Canada leadership. Charest says the Conservative party is where he belongs, touting a record of cutting taxes and defending federalism. In this interview with True North’s Andrew Lawton, Charest addresses his work with Huawei, carbon taxes, firearms ownership, and what a winning electoral strategy for the Conservatives looks like.

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.
