Gerald Butts is back, this time as a senior advisor to the Liberal campaign to re-elect Justin Trudeau and his government. That the Liberals welcome Butts back with open arms after he resigned in disgrace earlier this year over the SNC-Lavalin scandal indicates the Liberals think Canadians have already forgotten everything.

What’s worse, True North’s Andrew Lawton warns, is that they may be right.

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.
