François Philippe-Champagne owes the Chinese government $1.2 million.

To top that off, Champagne has spent most of his professional career outside of Canada.

Although the Trudeau government is trying to brush this off as nothing, True North’s Anthony Furey asks if Canadians can trust Champagne to properly do his job.

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.
