Our Coverage

The Wire Report is independently owned by Hill Times Publishing Inc. and run by an experienced, independent editorial team. We have no positions to advance, no biases to nurture. As Canada's media and telecom industry faces more consolidation and vertical integration, independence is critical to producing news about these sectors that you can depend on.

Our unique, comprehensive and independent coverage is based on access-to-information requests, interviews with industry sources, in-person coverage of CRTC hearings, Parliamentary committee meetings, industry conferences and announcements, time spent digging through regulatory and court documents, and more. Independent reporting means news you can trust.
