Conservative leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre has been attracting large crowds at his campaign events across the country. On Tuesday, the Carleton MP was in Gatineau, Quebec and invited Quebecers to meet him and hear his ideas.

True North’s Elie Cantin-Nantel was at the Gatineau rally and caught up with Quebecers who attended Poilievre’s rally.

Elie asks attendees what they thought of Poilievre’s promise to defund the CBC and what they thought of former Quebec premier Jean Charest running in the leadership race.

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.
