Why

We have our moment now for action. We have a planet threatened by a climate crisis and a politics in dangerous disarray. But we do a disservice to ourselves and our ancestors to succumb to cynicism or hopelessness. We feel this moment. We are living it. It is what we know. Some day, our descendants will read about it. What will they go on to next in the textbook? That is up to us to write.

Canada is facing major challenges ahead. At the same time, our national media is in collapse. Newsrooms continue to shrink and consolidate under the control of fewer and fewer corporations, and there are fewer journalists asking tough questions of those in power. We believe that our democratic conversation is made possible by strong, independent media, who exist first and foremost to serve the needs of its readers.
