With the economy shut down, the number of Canadians applying for emergency financial relief has soared. The government says it has received more than 4 million applications for the new Canada Emergency Relief Benefit.

And let’s talk about hydroxychloroquine – something the government and mainstream media are refusing to address.

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.
