On Wednesday, June 21st, the city council of Brampton, Ontario, will vote on a motion that would require all email correspondence between journalists and councillors, the mayor, and city staff to be made publicly available online.
The text of the motion is as follows:
Get a weekly note about our top stories.
This is a good thing that we do. You'll like this.
We are a very rare kind of company – actually and truly independent journalism.
We tell great stories that need to be told, without fear or favour.
We work for you.
Support us. We uncover secrets and hold the powerful to account.
We've done it before. We keep doing it.
Plus: ad-free podcasts, maybe some socks or a t-shirt. Up to you.
