We're still here!
If you were still able to see our Facebook page and stories last week, you can't now. Our page went dark on Wednesday like all other news sites in Canada have or will.
Meta, the company that owns Facebook and Instagram, is no longer allowing Canadian news of any kind on its sites in response to the federal government's Bill C18, Online News Act.
We hope the government and Meta will reach an agreement before the act comes into force in the new year so that we can be restored on these sites. But for now, all news is banned.
The aim of the bill, it says, is to "enhance fairness in the economic relationship between news businesses and online platforms" by having companies like Meta and Google pay a fee for hosting our news stories.
The ban on Canadian news that has resulted is not helping us or any other community news organization.
We want to be easy to find on as many platforms as possible so that you get as much local news as possible.
So, having us removed from social sites hurts us — and you.
But the fact is we are still here.
