In two months, Canada will co-host a press freedom summit. Yet this week, news broke that the federal government is preparing a list of media outlets the government deems “reliable.” What will the impact of this be on free speech?

True North’s Andrew Lawton was live to discuss, one day after returning from the United Kingdom, where he covered Tommy Robinson’s latest court appearance.

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.
