The government has shut down almost everything and enforcement officers are handing out more fines for those who supposedly violate social distancing measures.

Most Canadians are in support of “flattening the curve,” but do all of these measures actually make sense?

True North’s Anthony Furey says public officials should find ways to smartly facilitate social distancing rather than just shutting everything down.

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.
