We welcome your Letters to the Editor

Support us and go ad-free

We’d love to hear your opinions on the issues we cover. If you would like to submit a letter for publication, please:

  • email it to [email protected]
  • include the title and date of the article you’re responding to.
  • include your full real name, address and contact telephone number.
  • note that we prefer letters of no more than 200 words.

If we publish your letter, we will only publish your name and town/city/country. We may also edit your letter for space and clarity.

Publishing your letter does not necessarily mean The Canary shares your views.

We will publish a selection of letters in monthly posts on our letters page.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

* Advert free reading experience
* Quarterly group video call with the Editor-in-Chief
* Behind the scenes monthly e-newsletter
* 20% discount in our shop

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?

    1. Why bother? Is not the comment facility sufficient? However, I note it is not greatly taken up at present.

      Speaking of which, it would be improved by encouraging text formatting (e.g. italic) and allowing embedded links to images and other web sites. Additionally there should be facility for editing/deletion within a stated time period (e.g. a day).

      The Daily Telegraph, before it totally went to the dogs, offered a blogging facility for registered visitors. This was well received and encouraged active discussion sometimes harder to achieve with ordinary comments/letters.

      Like many other web sites yours is cursed by a plethora of active scripts. These consume device’s computational resources and some appear to be trackers. At point of writing, sixteen scripts are active. Fortunately, the Mozilla Firefox browser offers an efficient add-on for blocking this garbage.

      Also, I work from the relative safety of Linux . A protection against malware which ‘bad actors’ might insinuate on your site.

      Finally, your news/discussion outlet is getting better by the day. I first heard of it from a ‘show’ on RT.
