With the arrival of the so-called “double mutant” COVID-19 variant in Canada from India, the Conservatives are calling on Justin Trudeau to suspend flights from global hot spots. By the time politicians get around to talking about travel restrictions, it’s already too late, True North’s Andrew Lawton says.

Also, the media is already saying Erin O’Toole’s climate change plan doesn’t go far enough, plus Canadian churches are closed to worshippers but open to film crews.

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.
