FUREY: An idea worth talking about: mandatory national service for Canadian youth

Canada’s social fabric is changing, fraying perhaps, ever so slightly.

Canada’s social fabric is changing, fraying perhaps, ever so slightly. Charitable donations, volunteerism and membership in community associations are slowly but steadily on the decline.

While there’s no one-stop solution to such a broad problem, there’s one idea Canadians ought to consider as election season nears: The introduction of some form of national service on a federal scale.

True North’s Anthony Furey discusses.

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.
