According to Governor General David Johnston, it’s the best time in history to be a scholar, as knowledge becomes ever more accessible to world citizens. But providing access to knowledge is still a challenge, and that’s something he wants Canadian academics to change.

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.
