Pierre Poilievre has been the Conservative leader for less than 48 hours and the media and activists are already fear-mongering about what his win means for the country: Trump comparisons, claims of “populist” appeal, and so on. In this edition of The Andrew Lawton Show, True North’s Andrew Lawton unpacks why Poilievre won so decisively and what that means for the conservative movement, the Conservative party, and the country.

Canada Strong and Free Network president Jamil Jivani joins the show to talk about where the conservative movement needs to go next.

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.
