The owner of Adamson Barbecue Adam Skelly openly defied the government’s lockdown measures and stood up for his right to operate a business and make a living.

In response, the City of Toronto fined Skelly thousands of dollars and the Toronto Police arrested him today.

True North’s Leo Knight says Skelly stood up against tyranny and that he deserves the support of all Canadians.

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.
