In January, Canada saw almost 10,000 COVID-19 cases per day. Five weeks later, Canada is seeing a massive decline in cases – just over 2,000 cases per day. Further, hospitalizations and other indicators have decreased drastically as well.

But instead of celebrating this good news or even discussing the different metrics, public officials are warning about the new variants and a third lockdown.

Anthony Furey asks why won’t public officials acknowledge the massive decline in COVID-19 cases?

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.
