CAMRT in the Media

Public advocacy through the press and mainstream media is an important tactic for MRT advocacy. Whether it is the creation of news releases to stimulate awareness, interest and public discourse on an issue, or response to stories in the media cycle that affect MRTs, CAMRT strives to provide an authoratative, respected and evidence-based voice for MRTs on issues.

CAMRT press releases, editorials and contact with the media has appeared on hundreds of media properties in the past few years. Below is not a comprehensive listing of all appearances, but examples that best display CAMRT exposure through media over time.
