Ottawa Working Group

Join this group

The Ottawa Working Group of the Media Co-op hopes to provide a vibrant hub of independent and alternative news, analysis and commentary to the Ottawa-Gatineau region.

The OWG-MC intends to provide access to all independent contributors from the Ottawa-Gatineau region and to all contributors wishing to provide content for the Ottawa-Gatineau region.

Contributions can be in any language.

Freedom of expression is our first priority, even for unpopular or politically incorrect views. We believe that open debate is the best antidote for views and opinions that are judged to be incorrect.
