The Federal Court has upheld the Trudeau government’s hotel quarantine program as constitutional, saying in a decision issued Friday that even though the program impinges on liberty and results in detention, these limitations are justified by the government’s desire to protect public health.

True North’s Andrew Lawton breaks down the decision.

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.
