Let's fix Canadian journalism, together.
Before you start, do you want to know more about what this is for, and who made it?
Alright! This survey is meant to gauge interest in and help shape a new initiative that'd get serious about fixing the Canadian media industry's biggest problems, as those who care about it, like you, see them.
As for me: I'm David Topping, and I've been a journalist of one sort or another for the last ten years, including for such fine publications as Toronto Life, The Grid, and Torontoist. This survey is independent, though, which means I'm the only one who'll see any results. (I may publish summary data from it, but never anything that could give away the identities of those taking part.)
If you have any other questions, please email me, at email@example.com, or find me on Twitter, where I'm @dtopping.
What's missing most in Canadian journalism right now?
Do you consider yourself a journalist, or otherwise work in the media?
How close is what you're doing to what you want to be doing in journalism?
Is helping those with less experience than you working in the media something you'd like to do more of?
Is there something journalism-y you've recently had an idea for and really wanted to create but haven't been able to?
Do you have access to piles of money, either personally or professionally, that could go to help funding one or more of the next big things in Canadian journalism?
Would you want to be part of something that would try to fix some of the problems in Canadian journalism today?
Is that something you'd ever pay a modest membership fee for to help make possible?
Thanks for doing all that. Now, just a few last things about you.
What, in just a few words, do you do now?
What's your email address?
Which of these describe you?
Where on the political spectrum would you say your beliefs fall?
In which province or territory in Canada do you live?
What best characterizes the kind of place you live?
Does that mean you're in—or can easily get to—Toronto?
Is there anything else you'd like to add before you're done here?
