Canada lost 71,000 jobs in November. Canadian inflation is up 2.2%. Retail and wholesale spending is down. Economists are downsizing their growth projections to barely 1%.

But Justin Trudeau says he disagrees with the economists who are sounding the alarm on the Canadian economy.

True North’s Leo Knight says the economic red flags are not good, but neither Morneau or Trudeau seem to care.

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.
