Media that YOU own
It's no secret that much of mainstream media no longer serves us.
The old bastions of journalism not only fail to cover the issues that
matter, but they're steadily going out of business.
Many of us spend tens or hundreds of dollars a month on newspaper and
cable subscriptions. What if some of those funds went to support a
different model of journalism?
Many of you have spent time at The Common Sense Canadian in the
three years since Rafe Mair and I co-founded it - so you have a sense of
what we're capable of. What you may not be aware of is how much we've
managed to do with so little.
Your support will go a long way!
We already reach a hundred thousand people, primarily in Western Canada -
but we want to be speaking to a half million, across the country and
beyond. That's where you come in.
We've been working hard for the past year at taking The Common Sense
Canadian to the next level. By investing in this campaign, you will

We'll keep hammering away at the issues that really matter
From Enbridge, Kinder Morgan and Keystone XL to "fracking" and LNG; from
elusive salmon viruses to billions in hidden government debt; from the
destruction of BC Hydro to Canada's lagging support for innovation; from
foreign trade deals to solving our transportation challenges; from resource
politics and climate change to balancing our need for jobs with our need for
a clean environment - the team of independent experts and commentators at The
Common Sense Canadian have been
there with fresh insights, a dogged pursuit of the truth and defence of
the public interest.
