I built the ECOreport in December 2013 and registered it as a business, in British Columbia, on January 31, 2014.
There is no revenue stream.
From the beginning, it was a news website focusing on the West Coast, from British Columbia to California, but also covering stories from other areas as they seem relevant.
The ECOreport radio program has been broadcast on Cortes Community Radio, CKTZ 89.5 FM since 2014.
I became President of Cortes Community Radio in June 2017 and subsequently redesigned the ECOreport as my personal website.
