About

The Independent is an independent, non-profit media outlet that publishes reader-supported news and commentary.

Justin Brake’s recent coverage of the Muskrat Falls protests in Labrador was a glimpse of the kind of journalism we can have in this province if we work together to build a news outlet that is free of corporate and government influence.
The is no doubt independent journalism has an important role to play in the development and maintenance of a healthy and sustainable democracy in this province. The question is, how soon can we build the news outlet that will produce that journalism?

With your support The Independent will expand its news coverage and critical, thought-provoking commentary, bringing in new and more voices from various regions of the Island and Labrador.
