Last week, the True North Initiative gave the Toronto Sun an exclusive immigration report which was released in response to an Order Paper question tabled by Conservative MP Tom Kmiec. The report revealed that more than 300 foreign terrorists, spies and criminals who posed a risk to Canada’s national security attempted to sneak into Canada last year. In addition, 1.4 million visa applications were rejected by the Canadian government. Not only did the Toronto Sun pick up on the story, but Candice Malcolm’s article made the front page of the Toronto Sun as well.

This report reveals what we’ve long been aware of: many people have attempted to manipulate and take advantage of Canada’s generous immigration system. We now have a better idea of the scale of this threat.

Unfortunately, it is unknown how many individuals were able to thwart Canada’s screening and vetting system, and enter the country undetected.

Canadians deserve to know the truth, and the True North Initiative is not afraid to do what Liberals and the mainstream media refuse to do – to have robust conversations on sound immigration and security policies.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
