🔹Climate protestors to target Victoria’s print media🔹

This coming Wednesday the local chapter of Extinction Rebellion, a global protest organization focused on climate-related issues, will be protesting outside of the Time Colonist headquarters on Douglas Street at Kings Road to bring attention to what the protest organizers alleges is a lack of coverage on climate issues by the publication and its ownership group.

The protest will take place November 13th at 3:30PM, and could last several hours.

The Times Colonist is Vancouver Island’s oldest corporate media organization and is owned by Vancouver-based Glacier Media.

Know it all.
Citified.ca is Victoria's most comprehensive research resource for new-build homes and commercial spaces.

The Times Colonist is emblematic of Glacier Media’s morally repulsive coverage of the climate and extinction emergency. XRVI speakers will feature research showing how Glacier Media has consistently refused to include even the clearest links between the climate emergency and its coverage of critical news events. Glacier Media, which also owns the Daily Oil Bulletin and Oilweek magazine, not surprisingly haven’t bothered to join Covering Climate Now, whose members have committed to report accurately about the crisis. Worldwide, more than 170 news organizations and individuals have joined in a stated attempt to “do justice to the defining story of our time.” In Canada, that list includes The Toronto Star and The National Observer.
