Justin Trudeau has finally stood up to China…kind of.

After months of protests in Hong Kong, Trudeau finally criticized China’s handling of the protests and China’s national security bill. He also said Canadians in Hong Kong can return to Canada – even though that’s their right as Canadians.

True North’s Anthony Furey applauds Trudeau for finally standing up to China but asks why did it take so long?

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.
