Statement from Steven Del Duca on World Press Freedom Day

“There is nothing more important to democracy and good government than a free press.

A free press holds governments accountable to the people they serve, and keeps people informed about issues that are vitally important to the functioning of a healthy society.

Today is World Press Freedom Day — and it comes at a time when the press is under pressure of all kinds.

We need the press to help us navigate through these complex and troubling times and I will always support the people whose difficult, and often thankless job it is, to ensure that the powerful are held to account, justice is upheld and that citizens have accurate and true information.

Today, that job is more important than ever, so thank you to Ontario’s journalists.”
