This week we signed up our 300,000th YouTube subscriber! Thank you!
300,000 people subscribing to our videos — that’s the size of a city!
CBC News — the folks who get $1.2 billion from Justin Trudeau each year — have just 221,000 YouTube subscribers. That’s a government subsidy of $5,400 per subscriber, per year. Global News has 39,000. CTV News won’t even show their subscriber number.
All of those old-school mainstream media outlets have been around for decades. We launched 19 months ago, from my living room, when the Sun News Network shut down.
Al Jazeera even mocked us at the time. Well, we get the last laugh — those Arab dictators spent a billion dollars setting up Al Jazeera America, but they have just 28,000 subscribers.
But this isn’t about our competitors, who have had nothing but scorn for us, and for you, these past 19 months. It’s about the news, commentary and activism that has made our website famous, brought to you by Lauren Southern, Gavin McInnes, Sheila Gunn Reid and the rest of our team, from Ottawa to Vancouver — and big plans to expand.
So, 300,000 subscribers. 301,000 actually. And growing by hundreds more every day.
Thanks for making us Canada’s fastest-growing alternative news and commentary channel — the place where you go for the other side of the story.
