Journalist and Breach contributor, Linda McQuaig discusses the importance of independent and courageous journalism, and the very real consequences of a Canada without it. 

Journalism is “about getting to the bottom of things…unveiling who has power and what they’re doing with that power”. Mainstream Canadian media is no longer capable of this work. They reflect the views not of the average Canadian, but rather their owners, some of the most powerful corporations in the country. 

We need courageous journalism. Journalism not beholden to or afraid of corporate Canada.
