    In the United States, Facebook is providing (a little) support ($3 million, 3 months, 13 newsrooms) to local news. In Canada, it’s . The Liberal government’s budget proposes $50 million (USD $39 million) over 5 years for the support of local journalism. The two relevant paragraphs from the :

    To ensure trusted, local perspectives as well as accountability in local communities, the Government proposes to provide $50 million over five years, starting in 2018–19, to one or more independent non-governmental organizations that will support local journalism in underserved communities.
