Remember the “One Planet, One Child” advertising campaign that ran in Vancouver earlier this fall?

In response to the ads promoting voluntary population control, Alberta MP Garnett Genuis sponsored his own set of Vancouver public transit ads that featured a picture of his own four kids and a Mother Teresa quote stating “How can there be too many children? That is like saying there are too many flowers.” Now, a whole bunch of Liberal MPs are screeching that the Conservatives want to ban abortions.

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.
