Justin Trudeau’s policy of appeasing China reached a new low this week as he and his cabinet skipped out on a vote to condemn China’s persecution of Uyghur Muslims as a genocide. If this political cowardice was to make nice with China, it didn’t work, as True North’s Andrew Lawton points out.

Also, politicians take aim at a small business for daring to say “China virus,” and an Alberta pastor is behind bars for trying to exercise religious freedom.

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.
