Last week, Conservative party leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre released a video that went instantly viral and drove the left completely insane. His message was that Canadians can reclaim their freedoms and their way of life in the same manner that people reclaim barn board. The left believes that anyone who uses the word “reclaim” must be a “racist” and a white supremacist so, naturally — Poilievre’s video drove them all insane.

Also, a viral clip of a Nigerian official pretending to faint while being grilled about allegations of corruption may have just given Trudeau’s cabinet a new strategy for avoiding questions in front of committees.

Plus, British Columbia NDP MP Rachel Blaney didn’t want to go back to work after the Canada Day long weekend so she gave her staff and herself the day off on Monday in solidarity with “American people who are pregnant.”

Finally, Jagmeet Singh takes home the Ratio of the Week Award for getting very upset at the “shameful” government he is propping up through his coalition with Justin Trudeau.

Harrison Faulkner is producer and journalist for True North based in Toronto.

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.
