Is the Trudeau government preparing to enable hard drug use? It certainly seems so.

A recent report by a Health Canada government task force recommends that the Canadian government end criminal penalties for possession of hard drugs like heroin, cocaine, meth and fentanyl.

Health Minister Patty Hajdu even goes as far as to say, “substance use is a health issue. It is not a moral issue or a criminal justice one.”

Sue-Ann Levy says the government’s enabling policies will kill addicts with kindness.

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.
