The original rationale for the lockdown was to not overwhelm the hospitals. That’s been accomplished – so why are we still in lockdown?

The lockdown has resulted in a damaged economy that will take months, if not years, to fix. The onus is on public officials to reopen the economy now.

True North’s Anthony Furey isn’t calling on everything to return to normal, but we can reopen the economy safely and responsibly. It’s up to the politicians to act.

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.
