Justin Trudeau punishes Canadians with a carbon tax increase today, and politicians across the country refuse to tell us how long coronavirus measures will be in place.

Plus, CPC Leader Andrew Scheer calls for China to be held accountable for its response to the coronavirus.

This is the True North Update with Candice Malcolm and Andrew Lawton.

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.
