As protesters fill the streets of urban cities like Toronto and Vancouver, the latest leftist fad is getting louder. Leftist activists are calling on politicians to defund the police – this is all nonsense.

Who’s going to respond to a bank robbery or a violent crime if it’s not the police? Social workers? Yikes.

Former police officer and True North fellow Leo Knight says this is a knee-jerk idea without any actual thought or analysis.

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.
