A right-wing media outlet that won a legal battle last week against the federal Leaders' Debates Commission is registered with Canada Revenue Agency as a charity whose listed purpose includes providing "support" to immigrants.

Last week, the True North Centre for Public Policy and Ezra Levant's Rebel News secured an 11th-hour court injunction forcing the Debates Commission to accredit both outlets, allowing them to question party leaders in post-debate scrums.

Founded by Candice Malcolm, a former spokesperson for Jason Kenney and the Canadian Taxpayers' Federation, True North simultaneously describes itself as a "media company," an "advocacy organization" and, according to court documents, as a "registered charity with the government of Canada."
