The now tiresome mantra that “we’re all in this together” can only take us so far. It’s true in the sense that we’re all abiding by some form of government mandated physical distancing, eager to beat back the virus.

But where it falls apart is in how different people are experiencing the consequences differently. For some, this whole experience is a mild inconvenience. For others, they are about to lose everything and they may never get it back.

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.
