Canada has a new ambassador to China. Dominic Barton, who has deep business ties with China, was appointed last week.

True North’s Anthony Furey says we need an ambassador that is aware of the new realities of China under Xi Jinping. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Barton is up to the task.


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.
