This is what happened to the University of British Columbia board of governors chair Michael Korenberg. Korenberg apologized and resigned after leftist activists, media and academics disapproved of tweets that he liked, which included tweets from Dinesh D’Souza, Ann Coulter and a Happy Birthday greeting to President Trump.

True North’s Lindsay Shepherd says conservatives are being persecuted by the radical left.

Independent media is more important than ever. We’re not part of the Trudeau government’s media bailout. Instead, we rely on supporters like you. Support True North: http://www.tnc.news/donate/

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.
