There will likely be consequences for Justin Trudeau for his role in the WE scandal, but it will barely be a slap on the wrist.

If Trudeau is found guilty of violating the Conflict of Interest Act yet again, he’ll face a whopping $200 fine. Seriously – that’s it.

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.
