In order to enforce social distancing efforts and mitigate the spread of coronavirus, some public voices are suggesting we must trade in our civil liberties, and that snitch lines, arrests, and cell phone tracking should be introduced or ramped up.

True North’s Lindsay Shepherd warns that we should be wary of the calls to limit our freedoms during the pandemic.

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.
