Ottawa’s Medical Officer of Health Dr. Vera Etches is recommending a new approach to deal with the pandemic – learning to live with COVID-19.

Dr. Etches says we need to get on with our lives with care, protect the most vulnerable people and safely reopen the economy.

True North’s Anthony Furey praises Dr. Etches and hopes she’s a trailblazer to lead us out of this troubling chapter in our lives.

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.
