Earlier this week, the Trudeau government unveiled its 2021 budget which included millions in foreign aid and international assistance. The government justifies its foreign spending by claiming “Canada is part of a global community.”

The government funded a variety of different programs including military operations, humanitarian responses and to promote its feminist agenda overseas.

Sam Eskenasi wonders what the return of investment will be on these expensive programs.

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.
