Only a handful of Canadian politicians have been pushing back against lockdowns and many of them have sacrificed their political careers in order to do so.

Why is it so controversial to oppose lockdowns in Canada?

Nobody is arguing that we shouldn’t take health concerns seriously, but we know shutting down everything doesn’t work.

True North’s Andrew Lawton argues that opposing lockdowns should not be a partisan matter and we need a political culture and climate that isn’t vilifying those who push for reopenings.

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.
