As publisher, it’s my job to create the vision and direction for Canada’s National Observer’s reporting. As the mother of four, it’s my job to leave the world a little better than I found it. None of this is easy, but it’s worth every effort it takes. Journalism is my way of doing my part.
Over my four decades in media, I've seen the power journalism has to improve and even save lives. I've seen it change public policy for the better. I've seen it uncover massive corporate fraud and lead to sweeping social and political change. I’ve had the privilege of helping report on and lead investigations I know have made a stunning difference.
Looking into the future, I’m more excited than ever about the role journalism can play in the race against climate change. I’m excited about what we can and will do at Canada’s National Observer with your help.
As I’ve written so frequently in the past, none of what happens at CNO could be possible without each and every one of you.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll tell you about the nearly 3,000 articles we produced thanks to our last crowdfunding campaign. But even more importantly, I’ll introduce the urgent projects we hope to complete in the first six months of 2023: more on banks and fossil fuels, oil development in Canada, and disinformation clouding the climate conversation. That’s just a glimpse.
Your support has been critical to accelerate our climate reporting every step of the way.
Last April you were by our side. About 800 of your fellow climate advocates helped us reach our spring fundraising goal. As a result, we were able to launch a 10-part podcast investigating threats to wild salmon. You made that possible –– thank you!
I’m coming back to you now to ask for funding to do even more urgent reporting on Canada's changing climate. I must raise $200,000 by December 31 to make our 2023 budget.
Climate instability is escalating, and I believe we as journalists must double our efforts. We must boost our ability to tell this rapidly unfolding story in a way that reaches people quickly and deeply. Intelligent, thoughtful stories are probably the very best hope, I believe, to rally our communities quickly enough to confront this heartbreaking challenge.
We need your support to accelerate our 2023 climate reporting. Donate by December 31st and help us bring Canada more groundbreaking stories, critical analysis and game-changing reporting than ever before.
With your help, in 2023, we’ll commit to highlight the disinformation by the oil and gas industry, profile Canadian leaders spreading disinformation, and expose sites masquerading as journalism publications. If we surpass our target, we’ll go even further.
Empower CNO to continue this vital work.
