War memorials matter to Canadians. They matter to the people who served, they matter to the people who returned, they matter to the families of people who did not return.

There has been public outcry about the Afghan War Memorial and how the government opened it in secrecy. This is wrong.

True North’s Anthony Furey says the Afghan War Memorial needs to be made public.

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.
