Friends of Canadian Broadcasting begins online campaign

Toronto-based advocacy organization Friends of Canadian Broadcasting has begun an online promotion called “Tell Our Stories.” The initiative makes use of a website at <> which will host a series of short documentary videos made by Canadian filmmakers. According to the organization, the intent is to raise awareness of “the thousands of Canadian stories we won't hear or see because they are not being told.”

“Friends is sponsoring this series of terrific films to underscore the reality that if our voice dies, so does our country,” said Daniel Bernhard, executive director of the group. “Right now, foreign online broadcasters are flooding our screens, crowding out our stories. Canada's own media, where our stories should be front and centre, are on the brink. Our professional storytellers, who are among the best in the world, are mostly producing stories about New York, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.  We are becoming spectators of other people's culture, and losing our own.”
