Taiwan and Hong Kong have come up a lot during the coronavirus pandemic. You might be wondering why these countries matter.

True North’s Anthony Furey says Taiwan and Hong Kong are the beachheads for all that is good when it comes to liberty, freedom and democracy.

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.
