January/February 2023

50th Anniversary Issue

Briarpatch is 50 years old! In our 50th anniversary issue, we look at the history of the fiercely independent magazine: when the Harper government defunded Briarpatch; the readers that helped us stay afloat; former editors' reflections on the magazine's influence; and Briarpatch's relationship with Saskatchewan's radical Métis magazine. Plus, stories about the state of the media in Canada: indie media's bad labour practices; what Big Tech funding means for journalism; and media co-ops standing up to corporate power.
