Last week I asked for your support to fund reporting on the B.C. political donations scandal, and 38 of you have jumped on board and subscribed.

Thank you. Or, as my heart would say, GRACIAS.

In case you missed it, here’s that letter: What happens in B.C. doesn’t stay in B.C.

My goal was to get 50 new subscribers by March 24 (tomorrow), so National Observer's reporters can dig deeper into this scandal. And now we only need 12 more of you.

I imagine you share my concern about the influence of big corporate money on government decisions that will alter the face of our country. And I imagine that you care about the erosion of democracy, and worry about whether you can make a difference.

So, please, let me reassure you: YES, you can make a difference.

Right now, National Observer journalists are vastly outnumbered by corporate spin doctors. In British Columbia alone, public relations professionals outnumber journalists by a factor of four to one.

But there's a way to change this and I believe that you are a part of the solution.

You can help tip the balance and ensure that Canada's political debates are based less on spin, and more on facts.

So please, dear reader, think about the type of country you want to live in, and please SUBSCRIBE.
