Ontario is set to ban all cellphones in school classrooms and parents across the province are applauding this decision.

This announcement sends a clear message to our education system – don’t be so connected to your phones. It shouldn’t be your only lifeline to reality.

True North’s Anthony Furey says this is one small step in the right direction.

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.
