WATCH: Trudeau campaign blocks conservative journalist for third day straight
Yesterday (and the day before), we reported that the Liberal campaign was preventing Andrew Lawton from True North from doing his job. On Sunday, they blocked his entry to an event he had RSVP’d for, and then yesterday, they blocked him again, and police detained him and questioned him.
Today, things got more outrageous. Lawton tweeted just moments ago from outside the Liberal campaign event in Burnaby, B.C.: “The Liberals said I can’t cover their event because I’m not accredited. Yet two women from a university—one of whom is an exchange student, not a journalist (by her admission)—were accredited on the spot by showing on a cellphone an article written by the other one.
