Events in the Middle East often seem remote and disconnected from what happens in Canada, but with Joe Biden threatening American energy independence and inheriting a unique Middle Eastern situation, there may be a few surprises in store for Canadians.

Sam Eskenasi explains why he thinks we need to be paying closer attention to the Middle East right now.

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.
