After years of lobbying and sucking up to the UN community, including to despots, dictators and countries with questionable human rights records, Justin Trudeau lost Canada’s bid for a United Nations Security Council seat.

It wasn’t even close. Trudeau failed. In fact, he failed far worse than Stephen Harper and the Conservatives did back in 2010.

The truth is this — no one takes Justin Trudeau seriously. And because he’s our Prime Minister, no one takes Canada seriously either.

True North’s Candice Malcolm explains.

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.
