We can't publish in a vacuum; we need feedback

True North Perspective was launched ten years ago to provide Canadians (and our offshore subscribers) with an antidote to the lies being told by George W. Bush and his gang of criminals. The mainstream media was swallowing the lies whole and passing the poison on to innocent readers. The independent voices were all in their infancy so we concluded that we had a serious role to play. Since we began, the internet has flowered profusely with voices free of corporate control. Some of them have access to deep pockets and operate with budgets of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

True North Perspective virtually operates on good will. The lack of funds means that we can't even come close to producing with the sophistication that is within our intellectual and technical capacity. Aside from money, which for us is as scarce as water on the Sahara, we need feedback. We profoundly need to know what you think. So here below is a survey that will help keep us balanced. You should not feel obligated to reply to all. But even one, would be helpful.

Thanks for taking the time to help us fulfill our mandate. Looking forward.
