LAWTON: Celebrating citizenship isn’t offensive

The national Chinese restaurant Mandarin is once again offering its Canada Day promotion of a free buffet for all Canadian citizens, provided they show documentation.

Let no good deed go unpunished. The national Chinese restaurant Mandarin is once again offering its Canada Day promotion of a free buffet for all Canadian citizens, provided they show documentation.

But in 2019, this promotion is apparently no match for the social media hoardes, who have pounced on Mandarin, accusing it of not valuing non-citizen residents of Canadians.

True North’s Andrew Lawton weighs in.

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.
