This episode features a panel discussion which looks at undercovered issues in the B.C. election and what our province's independent media outlets can offer to counter the more limited coverage in the mainstream media.
The panel was presented as part of the CounterCulture Speaker Series run by the Media Democracy Project, the SFU School of Communication, and the SFU Institute for the Humanities and took place at SFU’s Vancouver campus on May 3, 2013. Panelists include Gwen Barlee (Wilderness Committee), Bob Hackett (Simon Fraser University and Newswatch Canada), Jarrah Hodge (Gender Focus), and Andrew MacLeod (The Tyee). The panel is moderated by Derrick O’Keefe, editor of rabble.ca.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
