At Canada's National Observer, we have a deep commitment to human rights, to democracy, to social justice, and to leaving behind a better planet for future generations.
These are core values that drive our reporting. We go all out to find the money for and execute reporting on these topics. It's how we first started the publication, turning to Kickstarter crowdfunding to fuel our climate and politics reporting about the oilsands, controversial pipeline projects and loss of biodiversity.
This year, we're committed to reporting on these topics that touch the lives of Canadians:
How international corporations with ties to the fossil fuel industry are bullying Canada
How “dark money” keeps harmful toxins in products you consume
How lax regulation of agriculture hurts the environment and public health
Doug Ford’s use of your tax dollars to strip away environmental protections
Your subscription fuels in-depth reporting at Canada's National Observer. Will you consider subscribing today or donating to make this work possible?
I've read emails from some readers saying they can't subscribe because there's too much to read already. I get it.
But even if you don't have time to read Canada's National Observer every day, your subscription will keep journalists working hard for you. Janel Johnson manages subscriptions and takes care of our help desk.
Here's how she puts this:
“You want independent journalism to be there working in the background all the time, whether you read it or not. Your subscription protects your right to know.”
Reader support for reporting at Canada's National Observer has changed the course of history, revised corporate policy, held those in power accountable, and kept citizens vigilant about big issues on the horizon. There's only so much we can do as individuals, but together, we get a lot done. I hope you'll be part of it.
