In the last few years, government officials have spent endless taxpayer dollars on renovations to their offices, private aircrafts and many more frivolous things.

The latest example is coming out of Rideau Hall – the office and residence of Governor General Julie Payette. Payette spent $250,000 for upgrades to Rideau Hall to enhance her demands for privacy.

True North’s Leo Knight says the Trudeau government doesn’t seem to realize that the taxpayer is limited – the taxpayer is not a bottomless money pit.

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.
