The Liberal government’s firearms bill will ban some toy guns and render a number of legally-acquired firearms “useless,” in Justin Trudeau’s words. True North’s Andrew Lawton dives into the legislation, and also calls for stronger opposition to it from Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives. Also, why Canadians should pay attention to Facebook’s battle against Australian social media legislation, plus a look at racist garbage cans.

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.
