The Liberal government has announced a two-year cap on international student visas amid mounting frustrations with Canada’s immigration system and rampant fraud within the international student visa program. The cap will reduce by 35% the number of student visas issued, but is this enough to deal with the problems? True North’s Andrew Lawton says it’s unlikely.

Also, the salaries for members of Parliament are set to rise by $8,100 to $16,200 this year. Canadian Taxpayers Federation Alberta director Kris Sims joins to weigh in.

Plus, True North has returned from Davos after a week of holding the elites and their anti-energy, anti-free speech agenda to account. Andrew does a debrief of our coverage of the World Economic Forum.
