China’s foreign ministry is thrilled that Canadian health minister Politburo Patty Hajdu is still parroting Chinese talking points. Also, the Globe and Mail published two pages of advertorial content straight out of China Daily, a newspaper run by the PR department of the Chinese communist party. China is ramping up its influence measures in Canadian politics, government and media, making it all the more important for Canadian institutions to push back against them, True North’s Andrew Lawton says.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

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.
