The World Economic Forum (WEF) is often criticized for how out of touch it is with the people affected by its policies, and how its members don’t take into consideration the regional differences around the world.

This is particularly true when it comes to the importance of oil and gas sector, and the Trudeau government’s plans for a “just transition” away from oil and gas.

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.
