Tyee Builder Spotlight: Brian Thair

Our independent journalism is made possible by folks like you who contribute monthly or one-time to keep our reporters out there asking tough questions.

“I support independent media because there seems to be a need for real independence and to cut away from the politically useless spinners. I value the broad coverage, and that The Tyee attacks issues of concern in a region far larger than Vancouver.

“I see my monthly contributions as an investment, and I encourage my family across the world to read The Tyee.”
