In these challenging times, we remember our need for courage, creativity, wisdom... and humour!

And in this age of rampant information, 'infotainment'
and blatant misinformation, we might add...
the knowledge, insight & intuition needed
to understand what is true and real.

We dedicate this website to the deepening of our
understanding of the true role and potential of humanity
to create the world we want to live in.

Through words, images and inspired actions, Dialogue seeks: to reveal the rapacious systems and schemes working against the interests of people and all living things on Earth; while also supporting and empowering, in print, online and in our communities, the 'imaginal cells' of our individual lives, to help us create and nurture the better world that we know is possible.

This website is being developed for the readers and writers of Dialogue magazine – and for all who are seeking new perspectives and deeper understanding about what is going on in our world… in order to put their/our daily lives on a path that will help create a healthy and harmonious future for our planet.  We envision – and are working to create! – an interactive website that will be updated frequently with posts from the readers/writers and new visitors to our web forum, in the form of: letters, essays, cartoons, poetry, photos, art, alerts, events, blogs, comments, recommended reading (books, links & websites), videos ~ and any other creative format you dream up!

Are you getting the knowledge & insights you need in order to understand what is happening in the world today?

  • Do you sometimes wonder if the mainstream media is giving you the whole (or true) story?
  • Do you believe you have a right to hear what is really going on – in Ottawa, the provinces and globally – and how it affects (or will affect) all of us in our local communities?
  • Do you ever wonder if the so-called 'opinion polls' actually reflect what ordinary people are thinking?
  • Do you want to hear what Canadians and others are really thinking and saying?

If you answered ‘YES’ to any of the above, then you will want to read Dialogue Magazineon line and in print – the home of “Canada’s Independent Voices” since 1987!

Read, write, have your say… in Canada’s unique, national, non-profit, volunteer-created magazine!

Dialogue magazine
is an independent, not-for-profit print periodical that began in 1987, as a forum of ideas, committed to freedom of expression.

As a volunteer-based alternative media, Dialogue features articles written and suggested by its readers across Canada and beyond.

Previously published from Quebec and Ontario, Dialogue magazine (since 2001) is compiled from the home of its publisher, Maurice King, and its editor, Janet Hicks King, in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island, BC.

If you are in the neighbourhood, you are welcome to come by for a visit! [Tel. 250-758-9877; 6227 Groveland Dr., Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, BC]


Our goal is for this website to provide an interactive resource to support and enhance the communication and empowerment mission of Dialogue magazine.

There are many inspiring and informative sites on the Internet (our priority list contains 37 so far!) and our goal is to develop our web location as a home that brings together all the perspectives that 'truth-seeking troublemakers'* and creative activists might need or want to know – or want others to know - ideas that are important for moving us in the directions we want to go!
[*i.e. thwarting the plans of those working
against the interests of the people and planet!]

Through the original articles and referenced material and links on the site, we hope to encourage: critical thinking, deep understanding, ‘radical imagination,’ heart-centered consciousness, creative activism and effective local strategies ~ and a sense of humour to see us through difficult times!


If you have any ideas and suggestions for special features (and links to other sites) that you would like to see included here, please email me (Janet) at: dialogue@dialogue.ca

If you are a Dialogue columnist or writer, please email a biographical note and photo or favourite image, so we can build the page that will feature your contributions. Thanks!

While under construction, this website is being hosted as dialogue2.ca – but it will soon be moved back to www.dialogue.ca . Thank you for your patience – and even more, for your help – while we build and develop a new interactive website for Dialogue magazineWe hope you will join us in this exciting adventure by forwarding your suggestions, input or images.

The “Gravely Underreported” 2015 Canadian Federal Election
By Global Research News, Global Research, October 11, 2015
The 2015 Canadian federal election is right around the corner.  On October 19, the incumbent Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, will either be voted out of power or re-elected by the Canadian populace.
There are good, bad, and ugly features in every political system. The prudent voter is aware of this reality. However, mainstream news in Canada does not incite prudence; a great deal of media outlets have omitted to mention the coverup and fraud instigated by the Conservative Party in the 2011 election, not to mention its complicity with the US war agenda in the Middle East. The Canadian media in this regard is in the business of concealing a corrupt system that merely buys and sells pseudo-politicians.
Global Research
brings to the attention of its readers a selection of articles that highlight these examples of political corruption in the country. ...
