This week is big week for Canadian media and publications. The official launch of Ricochet Media is THIS Thursday with launch parties from coast to coast Including Vancouver - where I'll be speaking on the Indigenous Reporting Fund. https://ricochetmedia.ca/ is a publication that flips the pyramid of a media power structure on its head. Our editors get paid minimal and/or volunteer, majority of the subscription $ goes towards proper compensation for journalists AND most importantly the expenses for going out to the field to do investigating news reporting. This is sadly not the state of most major media outlets today, they put no $ investigative news. Cutbacks and corporate control/pressure affects a democratic news in Canada today. Help be a part of the solution, real investigative journalism launches October 2nd across Canada.
