Can you imagine if, on his last days in office, Donald Trump called for strict and nationwide lockdowns?

If this was the case, a large swath of people – particularly people on the left – would support opening up the economy simply because it’s the opposite of what Trump says.

Anthony Furey hopes with Trump out of office, political leaders can take a more rational approach to the virus.

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.
