Justin Trudeau has made it his mission for Canada to win a temporary seat on the UN security council.

Is it worth the time? Is it worth the money?

True North’s Anthony Furey says it’s only worthwhile if Canada actually stands up for liberal democratic values.

Fan of True North? Help us keep the lights on by supporting independent media: 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.
