The second Global Conference for Media Freedom is taking place online today, and the very first session of the conference is closed to the media. That’s right, journalists aren’t allowed to attend as representatives from governments across the world – including Canadian foreign affairs minister François-Philippe Champagne – discuss “key concerns regarding media freedom and identify priorities for the coming year.”
True North’s Andrew Lawton is covering the conference.
