The Canadian government’s policy of appeasing China reached a new low, with secret documents showing the Trudeau government pushed back against military officials who wanted to stop offering military training to the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. When called on it, all the Trudeau government says is that it wants to repatriate Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor.

True North’s Andrew Lawton talks about this weak and ineffective approach to China, and also calls out the mainstream media’s refusal to credit Rebel for breaking the story.

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.
