Justin Trudeau has racked up the biggest deficit in Canadian history in a matter of two months. Our deficit is nearing $400 billion and our national debt is a whopping $1.4 trillion.
To make matters worse, there is no oversight and no accountability for this historical amount of spending. Even the Parliamentary Budget Officer has acknowledged that there is a lack of information available to the public.
True North’s Leo Knight hopes the Trudeau government treats the taxpayer better in the new year – but he highly doubts it.
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.
