KNIGHT: The Charter of Rights and Freedoms no longer applies

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.
