Compared to Stephen Harper, Justin Trudeau spent a lot more money and campaigned a lot harder in an effort to get Canada a seat on the UN security council.

If both Harper and Trudeau failed, perhaps it’s time to ask why do we even want a seat on the UN security council?

True North’s Anthony Furey says it’s time for Canada to re-think our relationship with the United Nations.

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.
