Hockey is suddenly under the racism microscope.

Last Saturday, Ron MacLean actually lectured viewers about his “white privilege” and the “structural racism” in the sport.

True North’s Leo Knight says this is ridiculous. Hockey is a sport for Canadians of all backgrounds and unites all of us regardless of skin colour.

You’re not going to hear about this in the mainstream media because they love cheering on this type of race-baiting behaviour. This is why independent media is so important. Support us:

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.
