A new "think-tank" with close connections to the Canadian Taxpayers Federation received $50,000 last year from the Donner Canadian Foundation, a prominent funder of right-wing ideological organizations in Canada.

SecondStreet.org describes itself as "a new think-tank" launching in early 2019. The organization's mission, the single-page website now says, will be "to tell stories of everyday Canadians -- from coast to coast -- and show how they're impacted by government policies."

Needless to say, it's unlikely the stories the group tells will show government or public services in a particularly good light, although that remains to be confirmed.
