Despite what the mainstream media and leftist politicians would want you to believe, Canada is home to a large number of pro-life individuals.

However, in so many instances – when Canadians express their pro-life views, they’re persecuted, ridiculed and ostracized. In a free society, all voices need to be heard, not just the ones that agree with your world view.

Mattea Merta explains why it’s so important to stand up for one’s right to free speech.

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.
