Eight huge conglomerates control the messages Canadians hear, see and read. In this issue, CD introduces the movement underway to monitor and reform Canadian media, among the most monopolized in the western world.

Also inside: Mel Watkins on Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine; neoliberalism in Ontario; fighting in the Gaza ghetto; and our regular feature, Around the Left in 60 Days.
