As Ontario and Manitoba enforce stricter lockdown measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus, public officials seemed to have forgotten everything we learned about the virus.

Public officials have completely disregarded the secondary harms of the lockdowns, such as the mental health ramifications and an increase in drug overdoses.

Anthony Furey says this is a very troubling trend.

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.
