Justin Trudeau’s government will be making a list, checking it twice and deciding which media outlets are naughty or nice. It’s the next step in a plan to spend millions of dollars to bolster the Canadian news industry.

Except little is known about how the feds will decide which news companies “qualify” as legitimate, and which ones won’t be government “approved.”

True North’s Andrew Lawton says this is especially problematic given Canada’s upcoming Press Freedom Summit, which we’re crowdfunding our coverage of here: https://tnc.news/help-us-crowdfund-our-press-freedom-summit-coverage/

2021 has been True North’s best year yet. Thanks to supporters like you, we had our best online fundraising month yet in August!
