Delighted and proud to issue the Nova Scotia Advocate’s first call for (paid) submissions. We’ve been paying some of our writers for a while, now we want to do even more. Read this post for all the specs. And many thanks to all our generous readers who donated and made this possible. Paywalls aren’t an option for us, since so many of our readers are poor. Great to see people recognize that and come through big time.
Check out this weekend’s video on the Halifax Media Co-op, shot in 2009. Of course the HMC is now on hiatus. I say, let a hundred Bousquets and Googoos bloom.
Stop arresting journalists in Labrador or anywhere. Pretty embarrassing that you have to write an op-ed to make that point.
Timothy Gillespie, a journalist who covers the goings on in the Town of Shelburne is facing a Facebook death threat because of a story he wrote. The moderator, a Baptist minister, refused to take the post down. The police say they can’t do anything about it. Sure, small town politics gets heated, but this is ridiculous.
