The campaign is getting very little in the way of traction in mainstream media. At the time of writing, there is no coverage on any of the major Canadian news sites (CBC, The National Post, The Globe & Mail), nor international sites like CNN or BBC. An great article by George Arthur in the Digital Journal provides a good overview of the issues at hand, but also identifies several reasons why the coverage might be minimal, including a lack of structure or a refined message to help communicate the ideals of the campaign. Despite this issue, over 213,000 signatures have been added to the online petition, and now that the work-day is over, it’s time to increase that number substantially!
