China is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China with the largest military parade in their history. This all while violent protests continue to escalate in Hong Kong – resulting in a young protestor being shot.

Meanwhile in Toronto, there were flag raising ceremonies being held to celebrate China’s anniversary. Why are Canadians celebrating Mao Zedong’s violent communist takeover of China? Is Mayor John Tory’s boycott of the event enough?

True North’s Anthony Furey discusses this and more.

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.
