On Friday, Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced additional COVID-19 restrictions as the province announced a spike in cases. The new restrictions include a provincewide mask policy and target restaurants, gyms and other social settings.

The only problem is the media and the government aren’t telling you the truth – some of the reported cases are outdated and the government doesn’t actually know what’s causing the spike in cases.

True North’s Anthony Furey asks are these new restrictions actually reflective of reality?

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.
