Letter from our founder
Welcome to The News Forum.
We are a media platform where fresh ideas are explored and innovative solutions are sought out in regard to challenges facing our nation today. We believe that information must be presented with integrity, and in a manner which is helpful to Canadians when forming their opinions. We want to balance all sides of an issue with the complexity that it deserves and encourage viewers to think for themselves while watching engaging programs (without political restriction), so that they can make informed decisions.
If our commonly understood democratic freedoms are to be protected, Canadians need a renewed commitment to celebrate true diversity and multiculturalism by how we move the conversation forward, and how we engage with each other to make Canada better for all and not just some. We would like to encourage Canadians to take the time to deliberate between different viewpoints and stances, with the hope that reason, healthy compromise, and progress will prevail.
We believe that The News Forum is the platform for such engagement.
We hope you will join us in spreading the word about this new Canadian network and participate with your ideas. We look forward to building a better future – together.
