It’s been a full year since China arbitrarily imprisoned Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor in retaliation for the arrest of Meng Wanzhou. Since then Canadians have watched a series of events unfold, ranging from the pork ban to outlandish remarks from Chinese diplomats.

Canadians are wondering what is this all about? How can China be so brazen? What motivates them? Good questions. Yet our politicians have failed to answer these questions.

True North’s Anthony Furey explains.

We’ll always stand up for Canada. Support truly independent media:

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.
