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.

I'm glad to see that you have a commitment to a living future for our species on this planet, rather than just a fossil trace as for those already extinct. I hope your efforts to make known widely the information already identified to achieve a sustainable Biosphere , are very successful. From what I am able to glean from the small sample I am able to see, our advanced societies, are not interested enough in a sustainable future to allow one to happen, certainly not for the more complex life forms such as us Sapiens . The 'window' to be successful is fast closing, as short term destructive goals mask the impending Armageddon . Perhaps J.B. will trigger the change to a brighter Future in time!
