One month after the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, it is almost impossible to keep up with the number of complaints received and fines issued to Canadians who fail to properly socially distance.

Authorities across Canada are instituting stronger measures to keep Canadians isolated and indoors.

True North’s Lindsay Shepherd covers the new developments in the sphere of civil liberties.

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.
