Carleton member of parliament Pierre Poilievre joined True North’s Andrew Lawton for a wide-ranging discussion as part of our Conservative Leadership Series. In this interview, Poilievre discusses free speech and independent media, inflation and CBC funding, among other topics.

This interview was recorded last week, before Patrick Brown was disqualified from the Conservative leadership race and before James Topp arrived in Ottawa in Canada Day.

    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.
