The Trudeau government and mainstream media have been beating the drum about the threat “misinformation” poses to Canadian democracy, but all evidence points to the fact that no such crisis of misinformation exists. Democratic Institutions Minister Karina Gould has nevertheless opened the door to regulate and crack down on social media companies, even though, by her own admission, there were no substantive misinformation issues during this month’s federal election.
True North’s Andrew Lawton has the latest.
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.
