MediaRare wants to be your home for the news, information and resources that are typically missing or under-reported in the mainstream media. 

MediaRare works to deliver the stories and issues relevant to our shared experiences, challenges, and hopes in a world frenzied by economics of greed, consumerism, and corruption.

MediaRare prioritizes content that offers timeless critical context, and themes that incite the values of social justice.

MediaRare aims to match visitors with new venues and voices, so that we all might become better informed and engaged.

MediaRare intends to support and publish original media criticism and analysis, with an aim to exposing corporate bias and complicity in Canadian mainstream media.
