Many of the attendees at the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting are travelling by limousine and private jets. At the same time, they’re lecturing Canadians – and everyone else – about an “energy transition” at the expense of our oil and gas sector.

But does the WEF practice what it preaches? It doesn’t appear so. There is a big divide between what is being promoted at the conference and what’s actually done by people there.

True North’s Andrew Lawton is in Davos, Switzerland at the WEF conference and caught up with WEF officials to ask them about the brazen hypocrisy.

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.
