It’s policy based on a straw man, one might say. Justin Trudeau announced a ban on single-use plastics to reduce pollution in the ocean, except marine plastic is overwhelmingly from Asia and the developing world, not Canada.

Trudeau’s announcement is environmental virtue signalling, not the evidence-based policy the Liberals promised, True North’s Andrew Lawton says.

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.
