Canada Day protesters in Winnipeg knocked over statues of Queen Victoria and Canada’s reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. The only person charged so far is a counter-protester who police say was upset about the statue tear-downs. NDP Member of Parliament Niki Ashton celebrated the vandalism as an act of “decolonization,” despite her four oaths to the Queen as a member of parliament.

True North’s Andrew Lawton says the activist mob is not simply opposed to statues, but the entire existence of Canada as a country.

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.
