Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre has said that Justin Trudeau needs to “butt out” of New Brunswick politics, to the New Brunswick Conservatives’ policy requiring parental consent for a student under 16 to change their officially change their gender in school. Poilievre said provinces should decide educational policy and parents should decide how to raise children. True North’s Andrew Lawton says the Conservatives need to be more forceful in their support of parental rights, especially since it’s an issue that seems to extend beyond committed Conservative voters.

Also, the Liberals might give even more money to bail out the media given Facebook’s protest of Bill C-18.

Plus, writer and retired professor Janice Fiamengo of The Fiamengo File joins the show to point out the “false numbers and shameful misrepresentations” behind a YWCA campaign on domestic violence.
