Winter fundraising promo (2)

Canada’s pandemic recovery must be inclusive, forward-looking, and transformative.

It’s one thing to “build back better,” as many of our governments say they will do. But for whom are they building? How transformative are they really willing to be?

“Building back” onto systems that are not working is simply building on failure. That’s why at, we’re focused on what it means to build forward — not back.

We’re spending this year focused on holding governments accountable for the systems that have failed us, and featuring the stories of activists and changemakers who are fighting to change them. We need your help and support to do it.

For starters: what’s your vision for a progressive, post-pandemic nation? What are the issues closest to your heart? Pharmacare? Community investments? Defunding the police? Let us know by answering our poll. Then spread the word around and share the poll with your friends, too. We want to hear your perspective.

We’re also in the final weeks of our winter fundraiser. The independent journalism we produce at rabble relies on the support of our readers. We approach our work with the public interest in mind: it’s why all of our content is 100 per cent free. In order to keep this up, we need to raise $50,000 by February 14. It’s a great time of year to show some love.

Thanks to our amazing readers, we’ve already managed to raise $30,000! For that, we are so grateful. But — we have $20,000 more to go, and only 10 days to get there. If everyone reading this could chip in what they can right now — we’d be so much closer to our goal.

If you’re unable to donate, you can show your support by sharing our survey, our donation ask, or even the stimulating news and views that you find on with your friends and family! Lots of our stories make excellent inbox-surprises for the conservative uncles in your networks.

Support us today, and we pledge to move our collective grassroots conversation forward every day of the year.

Help us keep the conversation going, and let’s build forward — towards a more progressive, inclusive Canada.
