Queen’s University medical school has announced its intention to become a leader in culturally safe, anti-colonial, anti-racist and anti-oppressive health professions education.

One of their new initiatives is to reserve 10 seats in the medical school for Black and Indigenous students only.

This might sound nice and progressive, but True North’s Lindsay Shepherd explains why it’s not.

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.
