The federal government has denied playing any role in the drafting in the publication of a controversial Muslim voting guide by researchers at Laurier University. While the anti-Islamophobia researchers did receive a $25,000 grant, this money was not tied to the voting guide, but rather their general Islamophobia research.

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.
