The type of licence and other particulars remain the private domain of Fortress Of Freedom Inc.; but we would entertain discussions with interested parties who may wish to join us in a dialog to explore the possibilities. A brief synopsis of who we are will follow. The necessary prerequisites are there for a successful application as you will see.

FOF NEWS DEPARTMENT:
It is the duty of a broadcaster to use it's licence to inform it's listeners, in other words a news department is a must for a successful application. At FOF and IAIJ we have such a news department and news organization with an unblemished track record that spans four years! The principles of transparency, objective reporting are top of the list at Fortress Of Freedom!
Our first press card become a reality in late December, 2003 and marked the first major accomplishment by our organization. Here was a press card with URL support that could verify and validate journalist credentials from a cell phone to the most obsolete computer in the most backward parts of the world. This was accomplished by having what we billed as the world's most accessible web site with the fastest page presentations possible. A true accomplishment! This became IAIJ, a journalist support group and then International Archiving Of Independent Journalists Inc. which archives journalist credentials and does credential verification.
Our newspaper called The Fortress became a reality in early April, 2004. The newspaper is currently a university paper distributed out of York University. The paper allows amateur and established journalists an unbiased platform for their news stories. This will be a permanent fixture in our organization.
Electronic News Gathering or ENG became a reality for our organization in late September, 2004 and promises to become one of the most important elements at Fortress Of Freedom!
Fortress Of Freedom made it's first film called "Real Life" in 2007. The organization currently has two other films in production with National Film Board support for at least one project.

We are active promoters of Canadian talent and culture and our past four years of audio and audio/visual production and print production is the definitive proof of our dedication to community service!

Fortress Of Freedom advertises from it's subsidiary company MORE VISION which provides in-house and business services to business in the advertising industry.
