Chrystia Freeland finally meets with her Chinese counterpart, while Michael Kovrig receives his 10th consular visit – but is that something to celebrate? Is China just dragging its feet on the issue until Canada caves into its demands?

True North’s Anthony Furey discusses this latest development.

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.
