Growing western alienation has reached a boiling point since Justin Trudeau’s minority re-election on Monday, with a spike in people looking into and talking about a separation of Alberta and Saskatchewan from Confederation.

These concerns reveal a national unity crisis that rests on Trudeau’s shoulders, True North’s Andrew Lawton says.

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.
