Countries around the world are taking precautions to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Air Canada has extended its ban on flights to China until April, but is this enough? What about Iran and Italy?

True North’s Anthony Furey says there are many reasons for Canadians to take precautions.

Support independent media:

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.
