About The Discourse Cowichan
The Discourse is focused on truly local news that brings the Cowichan community together. That’s why we listen before we report, and our community members inform what stories we tell. Our journalism is not dictated by people — politicians, advertisers, journalists — who aren’t invested in the communities we serve.
We’re passionate, scrappy journalists and we’re committed to building a new kind of media that better reflects us all — because we’re connected to these communities, too.
Reporter Jacqueline Ronson cares about the Cowichan Valley because she lives here and she’s heard that many people are unsatisfied with the state of local media. That’s why, she is committed to building a better model. Above all, that model starts with listening, and with telling in-depth stories that matter to people who live here.
Together, our team at The Discourse Cowichan produces award-winning investigative journalism that privileges feminist and diverse perspectives and is driven by the pursuit of truth.
The Cowichan Valley deserves news that helps us build a more inclusive and sustainable community.
The Discourse Cowichan relies on readers to fund our journalism, not advertising. That means we can focus on telling stories other media ignore, instead of chasing clicks. We invite people with different perspectives to join the conversation, so we’re not just preaching to the choir. Your support helps connect diverse people in our community.
