Funded by / Ownership

The website is owned by Judi McLeod and is funded through heavy online advertising. The site is difficult to navigate due to excessive pop-up ads.

Analysis / Bias

Canada Free Press is an overtly Christian, extreme right website that peddles conspiracy theories such as Obama being an Islamic Terrorist and 9/11 as an inside job. They also promote pseudoscience such as Climate Change Denial and Creationism.

Canada Free Press routinely uses strong loaded wording that always favor the right such as this: New Poll Results Freaking out Democrats. When it comes to sourcing they favor right biased sources and occasionally use sources that we have rated as Questionable.

A factual search reveals numerous failed fact checks.

Overall, we rate Canada Free Press Questionable based on extreme right wing bias, promotion of conspiracies and numerous false claims. (10/2/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 8/20/2018)
