Despite posting massive profits in recent years, MasterCard has received $49 million from the federal Liberal government. True North’s Andrew Lawton says it’s time to put an end to corporate welfare.

Also on the show: A government report is pushing for a crackdown on alternative media and online news platforms, and why real Canadians don’t care about bilingual politicians.

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.
