DeSmog Canada (www.desmog.ca) exists to clear the PR pollution that is preventing us from having sensible public conversations about critical issues around the environment, social justice and the economy. We work to clear the air and to explore solutions for cleaning up Canada's polluted public square.
Our core team, along with a wide range of guest contributors, produces on-line news, opinion and analysis on solutions to the deteriorating public discourse on science and the environment in Canada.
We seek to examine why Canadians often feel powerless to demand that government and industry focus on what’s really important: developing more effective public policies and transitioning to a healthier, more sustainable economy.
DeSmog Canada seeks to provide a credible forum for constructive, engaged public conversations about important issues facing Canada.
We invite you to be part of this conversation. Together, we can clean up the public square and encourage all citizens to pursue their right to take part in decision-making processes that will have a lasting impact on their health, community and the economy for decades to come.
