On social media like Facebook, algorithms largely guarantee that users will only see content from pages or groups that already agree with them, but it's voters who support the Harper government that need to be reached with urgent messages and questions. So the idea is to stop preaching to our choir and start reaching out to other ones to engage in respectful dialogue on issues.
Reach Across the Aisle Day is a facebook page is based on the idea of following and posting to social media pages where Conservatives gather en masse, in an effort to get more Conservative supporters to glimpse what they are voting for.
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.
