A fourth First Nations band claims they have found unmarked graves, this time on a small island off the coast of Vancouver Island. Unlike the first three bands, who claimed to have found unmarked graves using ground-penetrating radar technology, the Penelakut Tribe did not say if they used technology to uncover their findings. In fact, they have not responded to media requests trying to understand how these unmarked graves were discovered.

In other words, this is simply a claim with no evidence. But that doesn’t matter to the legacy media. Multiple media outlets, including the CBC, Global News, CTV and others picked up the story and ran with it anyway.

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.
