The CANADALAND Guide To New Popular, Populist Political Media
A wave of new operations will be looking to sway voters in the lead-up to this fall's federal election

A new wave of alternative political media operations has been growing in Canada over the last few years, and these sites and groups will be looking to sway voters in the lead-up to the federal election this fall.

One of the first prototypes for success was Rebel Media, a wildly popular far-right outlet and hyper-partisan political advocacy group that rose from the ashes of Sun News Network’s early-2015 implosion. Despite highly publicized setbacks, The Rebel still boasts over a million monthly visitors to its website, according to SimilarWeb estimates, and racks up several million views on its YouTube videos each month.
