At Pierre Poilievre’s first appearance before the media as Conservative leader, Global News reporter David Akin started heckling Poilievre before he even began speaking, prompting a retort from Poilievre calling Akin a “Liberal heckler.”

In this live edition of The Andrew Lawton Show, True North’s Andrew Lawton discusses whether this is the best way for the Conservatives to handle the media.

Also, former Conservative leader Candice Bergen joins the show live to discuss the road forward for the Conservative Party of Canada now that the leadership race has concluded.

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.
