A United Nations committee devoted to fighting racism is urging Canada to spike three pipeline projects, arguing that Indigenous communities have not been adequately consulted, despite extensive discussions with numerous First Nations groups.

True North’s Andrew Lawton says this sort of meddling is not the UN’s place, and also wildly disconnected with the facts.

We’ll always support the responsible development of Canadian energy and think the UN has no business lecturing us. Will you support True North? http://www.tnc.news/donate/

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.
