Pro-Hong Kong protestors showed up in droves in cities across Canada in support of the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong. And believe it or not – counter protestors in support of the Communist Chinese government also showed up.
Even a former Liberal Ontario Minister voiced his support for Beijing and urged Canadians not to support the Hong Kong democracy movement.
What is going on here? Are there actually that many people in support of a communist regime or is there something else going on here?
True North’s Anthony Furey discusses.
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.
