The president of the Alberta Federation of Labour Gil McGowan compared the Kenney government to Nazi Germany – seriously?

It’s a ridiculous statement to make, but it’s also problematic for various reasons.

True North’s Sam Eskenasi says making Nazi analogies lowers our political discourse and is intellectually lazy.

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.
