While the renaming controversies haven’t exactly brought people together, who can argue with celebrating successful and accomplished people who were admired by many?

Instead of finding a relatively obscure person from a long time ago to tear down because they don’t live up to today’s standards, why don’t we focus on honouring more great black Canadians, both the recently deceased and still living? There are many names to choose from and new streets and parks being christened every year.

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.
