-> The Dominion is a long term project to establish a new national newspaper in Canada, o­ne accountable o­nly to its readers and to the truth. As a result, we rely o­n readers to keep it growing. Consider making a donation. Read more here:   http://dominionpaper.ca/build/

With this issue, we're proud to present four new sections: First Nations, Review, Labour and Media Analysis. With these additions, we hope the Dominion will help to fill some gaping holes in Canadian journalism by providing in-depth, insightful coverage of aboriginal struggles, lesser-known Canadian books, music and media, and the labour movement at home and abroad. As you may have noticed, these topics receive almost no serious coverage.

The coverage that does exist is often misleading in critical ways, which brings us to the final section. With Media Analysis, we hope to provide a steady, critical flow of articles that help you understand how the media works, while pointing out specific disinformation.

If you have things you'd like to see covered by any o­ne of these new spaces, please let us know. As usual, thanks for reading, and thanks to those who have lent their support to moving the project forward.
