Conservative leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre has a special knack for triggering the left – especially on TikTok. On this episode of Ratio’d, Harrison Faulkner reacts to two of the most ridiculous anti-Poilievre takes we could find on the app. One video tries to make the case that Poilievre is a racist with racist policies – even though no policies were addressed in the video. The other video wants you to know that Poilievre supporters are “fringe voters, incels, untraditional, right-wing kooks”. Does that sound like you?

Also on the show, CTV News made themselves the news this week when it was reported that they had unceremoniously fired Lisa LaFlamme. Every single blue checkmark legacy media journalist bashed Bell Media for making this decision, without realizing that they themselves might be next.

And the Bank of Canada wants you to know that inflation is actually just in your head and the more you think it’s there, the more it will rise. For that ridiculous take on Twitter, they are this week’s winners of the Ratio of the Week award.

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.
