There’s a lot of discussion about how serious coronavirus actually is. Some argue that “it’s just a flu” while others argue this could be the next Spanish Flu. But here’s the problem — there are no COVID-19 experts. Nobody knows how deadly this virus will be.

As other countries begin to take intense measures against the virus, it’s inevitable that Canada will eventually have to clamp down as well.

True North’s Anthony Furey says Canada should take all the necessary preventative measures now to stop this virus from spreading.

Support independent media in Canada:

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.
