China has a long history of persecution against religious and ethnic minorities and women. Canadians should be very concerned about China’s disregard for human rights.
Despite China’s atrocious human rights record, Canada still plans to attend the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and refuses to label China’s treatment of Uyghurs as a genocide. Instead of condemning the regime, the Canadian government has been relatively silent.
Mattea Merta says Canada must stand up to the Chinese regime in order to protect our own rights and freedoms.
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.
