A pastor, a politician and a restaurateur are among those charged for their protests against government lockdowns in the past week under the guise of public health, revealing the criminalization of everything and everyone who dares to stand up for their civil liberties.

True North’s Andrew Lawton talks about the charges laid against Ontario MPP Randy Hillier, Pastor Henry Hildebrandt, and Adamson BBQ owner Adam Skelly, plus the bigger picture issues at stake.

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.
