Ontario health officials released their projections for cases and deaths as a result of the coronavirus – and they’re very grim.

Plus, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer doubles down on his skepticism of Communist China while Chinese state media praises Trudeau’s Health Minister Patty Hajdu, calling her “a role model.”

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.
