In the premiere episode of Reality Check with Jasmine Moulton, Jasmine debunks the leftist claims that “the rich don’t pay their fair share” and that “the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.”

Politicians such as Jagmeet Singh and Chrystia Freeland have repeated this flawed argument on a number of occasions, and these misleading and simplistic claims have influenced of the federal government’s economic and fiscal policies.

Facts and logic suggest otherwise. It’s time for a reality check.

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.
