New data from Statistics Canada show that just 37 per cent of Canadians trust the media. While it’s more than the number that trust federal politicians (28 per cent), journalists have a lower trust score than the school system, the justice system, and police. An exchange yesterday between Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre and a Canadian Press reporter may reveal why this is, True North’s Andrew Lawton says.

Also, anti-Israel protesters have descended on Toronto’s Jewish Mount Sinai hospital where they blocked access and in one case scaled the building to fly a Palestinian flag. Yet the politicians who condemned protests at hospitals during the pandemic have been silent.

Meanwhile, a Liberal-appointed senator has apologized for saying that Canada should do security checks on anyone coming from Gaza.

Plus, NDP MP Charlie Angus’ proposed private member’s bill would ban promoting how oil and gas development can be good for Indigenous communities. First Nations LNG Alliance CEO Karen Ogen-Toews joins The Andrew Lawton Show to discuss.
