Earlier this week, Trudeau’s Heritage Minister said the government was going to require news outlets like True North to obtain a license to report the news. After much outrage, he backed down.

This isn’t the first time the government has tried to regulate the media.

True North’s Anthony Furey explains in his latest video.

True North will never get a government license to report the news. Support independent media in Canada: 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.
