This Magazine has been a champion of Canadian culture for more than 40 years—and we need your help to keep it that way.
In the past year we’ve made even more space in our print edition for in-depth discussion of cultural issues and reviews of new Canadian books, films, recordings and artists.
We’ve brought you important in-depth pieces like “Canada’s outsourced war,” Anthony Fenton’s investigation into the Canadian companies that are profiting from the chaos in Iraq. Or “After the Tigers,” Meena Nallainathan’s incisive journey beyond the simplistic headlines of the Sri Lankan civil war to meet Tamil dissidents face-to-face.
Since we don’t rely heavily on glossy ads for income, our readers are our primary lifeline. And now we need you more than ever.
Investigative journalism costs money. Freedom of information requests and long distance phone calls may not be sexy—but they’re a big part of uncovering the important stories we bring you that the mainstream won’t touch.
If we could get 200 more of our readers to donate just $5 per month, we could fund six long-term investigations per year, more than twice as many as usual. We’ll be able to dig deeper, push harder and give you the information you need to make informed political decisions.
We don’t have a wealthy benefactor to keep us going. Our supporters are ordinary people like you, who believe in the importance of independent media. Every donation, no matter how small, helps keep This Magazine covering the stories you want to read.
