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.

Independent reporting means news you can trust.
