Justin Trudeau is at the United Nations this week, calling on countries to ramp up their efforts to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and also making a pitch for other countries to follow in Canada’s footsteps by imposing a carbon tax. True North’s Andrew Lawton weighs in.

Also, the Tamara Lich’s and Chris Barber’s criminal mischief trial is wrapping up its third week today, with only three of the 22 scheduled witnesses having testified. Journalist and filmmaker Trish Wood joins the show to give an update on how things are going in the courtroom.

Plus, Centre Ice Canadians, a group founded by former Conservative leadership candidate Rick Peterson, has launched a new “radical centrist” political party called Canadian Future, which organizers believe is the antidote to Canadians who feel “politically homeless.” Interim leader Dominic Cardy, an independent New Brunswick MLA, joins The Andrew Lawton Show to discuss.
