The last two years have been increasingly difficult for Canadians as government lockdowns and mandates had a detrimental effect on everyone – particularly the unvaccinated. However, despite the government’s heavy-handed response to Covid, many Canadians are still optimistic about Canada.

Yesterday, we witnessed thousands of Canadians participate in freedom events in celebration of Canada Day.

True North’s Elie Cantin-Nantel was in Ottawa and asked people why they thought Canada was still worth celebrating.

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.
