The Council of Canadians has been working with Diane Orihel, a scientist fighting to stop Harper’s closure of the freshwater Experimental Lakes Area research program. An article in today’s Winnipeg Free Press profiles Diane and her inspiring campaign. That article also notes, “A poll commissioned by the Council of Canadians recently found three out of four Canadians oppose the cut to the ELA, including 60 per cent of people who intend to vote Conservative.” More here http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/scientist-takes-on-ottawa-to-try-to-save-ela-176075651.html.

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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
