Oil Sands Narratives: Does the Media Provide Balanced Coverage of Energy Issues in Canada?

  • 12 Feb 2015
  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • RCC 103, Rogers Communication Centre 80 Gould Street, Toronto

Journalism can provide critical insight to shape the national public perception of social issues as well as inform citizens who have the ability to influence public policy. Recognizing that most Canadians likely receive their information about Canada’s oil sands through news media outlets rather than primary sources, journalists are expected to provide balanced coverage of the energy sector and other linkages such as, but not limited to:

 

  • environmental consequences,

  • the impact on rural and First Nation communities,

  • and driving global market influences.

 

The proposed event expects to bring experts together to discuss the extent to which Canadian journalism promotes or inhibits practical discussion on the Oil Sands.
