Governor General Julie Payette laid out the priorities of Justin Trudeau’s re-elected government in the Speech from the Throne, affirming that the Liberals plan to ban “assault rifles” and empower municipalities to restrict handguns. Doubling down on this campaign pledge means the government is ignoring the evidence and the experts, and scapegoating law-abiding gun owners for what criminals do.

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.
