Documents published by the Public Order Emergency Commission show cabinet ministers Marco Mendicino and David Lametti talking about sending in Canadian Armed Forces tanks to deal with the Freedom Convoy – though Lametti said this was just “banter” between friends. True North’s Andrew Lawton says the ‘just kidding’ defense doesn’t pass muster when the government ended up using wartime powers to deal with the protest.

Also, the Liberals are trying to expand their gun ban to include all semi-automatic guns. Rod Giltaca from the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights joins the show live to discuss why this will do nothing but criminalize law-abiding gun owners.

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.
