You can argue what Trudeau said behind President Trump’s back was tame and really not that bad, but diplomacy doesn’t work that way.

Some of the biggest files Trudeau faces require the U.S. looking upon us favourably and being happy to pick up the phone whenever we call.

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.
