Even if our canola shipments weren’t being blocked, even if this Huawei mess had never flared up, it’s a good idea for Canadians to get up to speed on the AIIB and ask themselves if they want their country to be a part of it in the first place.

While Canada initially refused to join under Stephen Harper’s leadership, Justin Trudeau has since signed us up for it.

True North’s Anthony Furey explains in his latest video.

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.
