Our contributors and supporters include progressive people across Canada united by a concern about rising inequality and the increasing influence of the far-right.” A whois search reveals the domain was purchased in August of 2017.

Funded by / Ownership

Analysis / Bias

North99 is a combination between a media source and an activist portal. The news reported always favors the left and uses loaded language such as this: Voter Fraud, Illegal Fundraising, Racism – A Timeline of Every Doug Ford Ontario Election Controversy. Essentially, the sole purpose of the website is to discredit right wing politicians and policy in Canada. News articles are reasonably sourced to mainstream media outlets.

Overall, we rate North99 Left Biased for story selection that always favors the left and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 6/10/2018)
