Imagine if The Discourse was in your community. What story needs investigating? What impact could dedicated coverage have on your neighbourhood? We’re inviting you to imagine The [INSERT YOUR TOWN HERE] Discourse for this reason: We plan to bring The Discourse to three new communities in the coming months and we want you to tell us which ones.
Starting in Urban Nation, Scarborough and the Cowichan Valley, we are developing a new approach that we can then bring to many other communities that either lost a news source or have seen a huge decline in the depth of local coverage.
Our vision doesn’t end at our current three communities. Our next step is to find other communities that want local journalism as badly. We’re building a movement to create media that genuinely reflects our country’s diversity.
Is your community next?
