To the surprise of no one, Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservatives won another majority government in yesterday’s Ontario election. Ford’s victory, which triggered the resignations of both the Liberal and NDP leaders, came after a largely uneventful campaign, but one that followed two years of controversial vaccine passports and lockdowns in Ontario. Despite the upstart Ontario Party and New Blue Party amassing a combined 4.5% of the vote, Ford increased his majority.

What do you think this means for the future of conservatism and conservative campaigning?

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.
