Is anyone double-checking Dr. Tam’s work? Is anyone in a position of power pushing back? Is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seeking a second opinion, like most people would after being given such a harsh diagnosis?

This is not a personal shot at the experience and resume of Dr. Tam, who has authored over 55 peer-reviewed journal publications and is the former assistant deputy minister for infectious disease prevention. It’s just common sense questions that everyone should be asking when dealing with a situation of such colossal magnitude.

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.
