Why secure your communications?
Quebec municipal and provincial police admitted they had been spying on Patrick Lagacé, Marie-Maude Denis, Alain Gravel and a slew of prominent journalists.

It's not the first time we face such an assault on privacy rights and the freedom of the press, but this one is a wake-up call. It's time to take matters into our own hands.

Ricochet takes your safety seriously. That's why we want to facilitate secure communications with our team. Information sent to Ricochet will be handled with care by trained professionals.

The Fourth Estate can only function if journalistic sources are protected. Don't take any chances. If you blow the whistle, encrypt your email communication.
