Justin Trudeau got humiliated yesterday by Chinese president Xi Jinping for apparently “leaking” the informal chat between the two leaders to Canadian journalists. Trudeau’s reaction to Xi’s lecturing has broken the internet – for all the wrong reasons.

Earlier this month, Global News reported that the Chinese Communist Party has been meddling in Canadian elections and covertly funded 11 federal candidates in the 2019 election. It’s alleged that the CCP has planted agents in the offices of MPs. What is behind Trudeau’s apparent weakness towards China’s influence?

Harrison Faulkner breaks down the world’s reactions to the dressing down of Trudeau from Xi and how Trudeau’s bought-and-paid-for legacy media propagandists are now desperately trying to clean up the mess.

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.
