Newly elected Leader of the Conservatives Erin O’Toole has pledged to defund the CBC in his first term. Will he actually do it?

The CBC receives $1.2 billion from the federal government annually – is this a good investment for taxpayers?

True North’s Sam Eskenasi looks at the CBC’s mandate and whether or not they’re living up to their legal obligations.

Here at True North, we believe O’Toole should fulfill his pledge to defund the CBC. Sign our petition if you agree!

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.
