Own Your Media – Before it Owns You!

A discussion and fundraiser for The Dominion Newspaper Co-operative

Tuesday April 8, 2008
Ferrier Building - 840 Dr. Penfield
Room 230

Tired of a media system that marginalizes, spins, and ignores stories of importance to the public?

The Dominion is a monthly grassroots newspaper published by a network of independent journalists in Canada since May 2003. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles.

The Dominion offers readers more than just a chance to contribute to the growth of independent media in Canada. All sustainers and subscribers are part owners of The Dominion.

The Dominion Newspaper Co-operative is visiting Canadian communities from coast to coast to speak about the importance of independent media. On April 8, 2008 they will be in Montreal, hosted by Media@McGill.

This is a chance for supporters and readers to come together to talk face-to-face about plans for The Dominion over the next five years. The Dominion is also soliciting committed financial support from individuals for this vision of a democratic and independent newspaper.

“As media monopoly extends it would be a major contribution for the functioning of a free society to have independent news sources, free from corporate or state control, internally organized in ways that exemplify what a truly participatory and democratic society would be. I was therefore delighted to learn of the Dominion Paper project, an ambitious and impressive effort to fulfill this urgent need. I know of nothing like it, and wish it the greatest success, for the benefit of all of us.”
