Never doubt government will find a way between people and fun.
Officials from two levels of government were investigating a seniors’ euchre game in Scarborough over its $1.25 buy-in – suspected of being a potential illegal gambling operation – until media attention caused the City of Toronto to stand down.
True North’s Andrew Lawton says this may have had a happy ending, but it never should have gone as far as it did.
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.
