Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre spoke to a crowd of thousands at the Calgary Stampede over the weekend, defending firearms owners and railing against censorship and what he called Justin Trudeau’s “woke ideology.” True North’s Andrew Lawton says it’s important to note how Poilievre is doing the opposite of what the media elites and political pundits have said for years conservative politicians need to do – and his poll numbers show him doing better than his predecessors.

Also, Canada’s ambassador for climate change has amassed $254,000 in travel expenses in less than two years. Saving the planet doesn’t come cheap, does it? Kris Sims from the Canadian Taxpayers Federation weighs in.

Plus, unionized workers from Ontario’s liquor store monopoly, the LCBO, are on strike over their opposition to some alcoholic beverages being available in convenience stores, which they pretend is a threat to public safety. Andrew discusses with David Clement of the Consumer Choice Center.
