In a very interesting letter sent to council, Black Press (Cowichan Valley Citizen) urges council to cancel all announcements, updates, surveys, etc promoted through Meta (Facebook).
Their plan? Divert the funds to media outlets such as themselves, so they can pay their journalists.
Is this a shot in the dark to become state-controlled? Only time will tell!
What do you think, should we divert tax payer advertising funds directly to local media for announcements and community updates?
