The federal government wants to regulate “fake news” in Canada, but has a track record of dismissing coverage it doesn’t agree with as misinformation.
Even so, Canada and the United Kingdom will be co-hosting a media freedom summit in England in July. True North wants to be there to stand up for press freedom, and hold the government to account. We can’t do this alone.
On World Press Freedom Day, we launch our crowdfunding campaign to empower us to cover this important summit.
Remember, we don’t get CBC’s $1.3 billion, nor do we get a piece of the $595 million media slush fund. Everything we do comes from our supporters.
Help True North and Andrew Lawton stand up for free speech and a free press.
