ESKENASI: Can the government run out of money?

Many politicians are pushing for more lockdown measures while promising to help businesses cope by introducing more spending programs.

Prime Minister Trudeau says the provinces won’t have to choose between people’s health and the economy because the federal government will step in – but can the Government of Canada run out of money?

True North’s Sam Eskenasi says it’s not as simple as printing as much money as you want.

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.
