Anthony Furey studied various pandemic preparedness documents that have been put together by different levels of governments in recent years. It appears public officials aren’t following their own playbooks in their response to COVID-19.

Anthony notes how the playbooks anticipated a situation much worse than the COVID-19 pandemic, but they actually call for less restrictive measures than the ones that have now been enacted.

Read Anthony’s report in the Toronto Sun.

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.
