We hate to say it, but we told you so.

True North’s Anthony Furey called it a year ago when he wrote a column about how the Canadian government was always planning on raising the carbon tax.

Lo and behold, this week Environment Minister Catherine McKenna raised the possibility that a Trudeau government could raise carbon taxes beyond $50 per tonne of emissions after 2022 if they’re re-elected.

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.
