Over the weekend, thousands of Canadian “freedom fighters” gathered in Ottawa for the Rolling Thunder bike convoy.

While most public health restrictions have been lifted in Canada, many Canadians are still unable to live their lives freely because of heavy-handed government mandates. Many of the protesters at this weekend’s events are demanding their freedoms back. 

True North’s Elie Cantin-Nantel was on the ground and asked demonstrators what they were trying to accomplish and why they came back to Ottawa.


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.
