Canadian media is under attack.
US tech giants Google and Facebook now dominate the digital advertising market in Canada – taking all of the advertising dollars that Canadian media outlets rely upon to provide news to Canadians.
Big Canadian ISP companies make money on every byte of data for the news, information and entertainment consumed by Canadians, but share none of it with Canadian news outlets and other Canadian content creators.
Canadian news outlets are being forced to shut down due to lack of funding. Over 30 local TV stations are set to shut down in the next four years, while newspapers and online news websites are in even worse shape!
