As the pandemic continues, some police agencies have decided the Charter of Rights and Freedoms no longer applies. This is dangerous ground.

Nowhere in the Charter does it state, “except in a pandemic.”

True North’s Leo Knight says it seems COVID-19 has driven common sense out of the room.

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.
