DeSmog Canada

We believe Canadians deserve more constructive conversations on the issues that matter most to them. Just as we can pollute the physical environment, we also run the risk of polluting public conversations.

That’s why we started DeSmog Canada, the country’s only news source dedicated to exploring solutions for cleaning up Canada’s polluted public square.

At DeSmog Canada, we go beyond the headlines to cut through the spin clouding the debate on important national issues such as natural resource development, the economy, democracy, scientific research, government transparency and industry accountability.

Through our news, opinion and analysis, we seek to raise the level of public discourse. Our contributors include some of the country’s top writers and thought leaders on energy issues and public dialogue.

Our work is regularly featured in the Huffington Post, The Tyee, the Vancouver Observer and the Victoria Times Colonist and our research and reporting has sparked coverage by the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Calgary Herald, Vancouver Sun, CBC and Metro News.
