Essay competition on the link between democracy and the media in Canada
FRIENDS of Canadian Broadcasting announced The Dalton Camp Award in 2002 to honour the memory of Dalton Camp, a distinguished commentator on Canadian public affairs.
The Dalton Camp Award will go to the winner or winners of an essay competition on the link between democracy and the media in Canada.
Canada enjoys a distinct cultural and democratic identity that joins us together and sets us apart. In every generation, vigilant citizens have fought against powerful interests to carve out space for Canada in the broadcasting system, so that our culture and identity can develop and evolve.
FRIENDS works to protect and defend Canada’s rich culture and the healthy democracy it sustains. A strong CBC, fearless journalism, and our shared story make us who we are. Millions of Canadians care deeply about the values and they deserve a tireless advocate in Ottawa. That’s us.
