Since the pandemic began, many politicians have violated their own coronavirus rules and have faced no consequences. Meanwhile, Canadians are punished for trying to live their own lives. The hypocrisy is astounding.
If politicians don’t follow their own coronavirus rules, why do Canadians have to?
True North’s Leo Knight says the hypocrisy of politicians isn’t anything new, but the breeziness of this hypocrisy has shocked and angered 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.
