In the US election, the Republicans managed to increase their vote count from 2016 and made significant gains among minorities. Despite 4 years of the media constantly accusing Trump of being a racist and being divisive, the GOP either won or came very close in key swing states.

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.
