This Remembrance Day, ask a veteran to tell you about the past. Then be sure to ask them their thoughts on the future.

True North’s Anthony Furey writes, we can’t pretend that the legacy of Canadian soldiers, whether it’s Vimy Ridge or Afghanistan, is something that can’t be brought to life and used to inform our discussions about events today.

Read Anthony’s latest in the Toronto Sun.

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.
