It’s Fake News Friday with Andrew Lawton and Harrison Faulkner!

This week, the CBC attempted to debunk the “conspiracy theory” that a London facility was producing crickets for human consumption. Unfortunately for the state broadcaster, the facility’s developers acknowledge that crickets are in fact being made for humans. Whoops –another failed attempt by the CBC to debunk a “conspiracy theory.”

Next up on the cancellation block is – surprise, surprise – Winston Churchill. According to an op-ed in the CBC, the leader who defeated the rise of fascism in Europe has “outdated views” and should no longer be commemorated as per the standards of 2022.

Lastly, news that really matters to Canadians – do Nanaimo bars have flour in them? This week, Conservative leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre was blasted for promoting the story of a baker who’s expenses for flour, eggs and butter has risen due to inflation, making it harder to bake Canada’s national treat: Nanaimo bars. Time for some top-tier journalisming to figure out if these tasty treats have flour!

Tune in to Fake News Friday on True North!

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.
