Video: With your help, something good can come out of Parliament! Why independent reporting from Ottawa matters
Here at rabble.ca we strongly believe that Canada needs more independent reporting coming out of Parliament Hill. In 2011, frustrated with the coverage of Parliament and the Prime Minister's Office we crowd-funded a journalist to report on the Hill for the rest of us. A few organizations and our readers came through and we sent Karl Nerenberg to do the job. Each year now we turn to the community to keep Karl covering Parl. Support Karl's coverage of Parliament right now at http://rabble.ca/donate. Keep up with the latest from Karl here.
