Hey there! 


We are The True North Times, an online publication that publishes satire on Canadian politics and we have an exciting opportunity for your students! We mock real news and people, so think of us as more like The Daily Show than The Onion; there’s no parody in our publication. We make news fun and engaging with the mission of getting Canadians, especially the youth demographic, engaged in our country’s politics. We’ve quickly become a top source of Canadian political news, with well over 100,000 readers and a lot of exciting projects with organizations and politicians across the country.  


Due to our tremendous growth, we’re recruiting new writers! We see Canadian students as the perfect candidates, since The True North Times is a way for them to get their opinions out and to get their peers laughing, as well as a chance to get some real world journalism and political commentary experience. This is not a student publication; this is a rare opportunity for students to join a real Canadian news source. 


We were hoping that you could share the following blurb in your next newsletter or listserv, as well as share it with other relevant student groups on your campus, to help get our call out there and give your students this exciting opportunity.
