Around the world, kids are not required to wear masks when they’re in school. Meanwhile, in Ontario, when kids return to school in the fall, masks will be mandatory.

And while the UK government has said the vaccine may not be safe for children between the ages of 12-15, in Canada, some people are pushing for kids of all ages to get vaccinated.

Anthony Furey says Canada needs to do a better job of putting our youth first.

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.
