Independent Ontario MPP Roman Baber is seeking the Conservative Party of Canada’s leadership. Baber, who was elected as a PC MPP in Ontario in 2018 and expelled from caucus over criticism of Doug Ford’s pandemic response, calls himself a “democratic conservative,” a view he says leaves room for everyone in the so-called Big Blue Tent of the Conservative party. In this interview, he and True North’s Andrew Lawton talk about lockdowns, free speech, caucus management, and more.

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.
