Miscarriages in Emergency

When, on Nov. 5, 2013, The Telegram published Barb Sweet's account of a woman who suffered a miscarriage in a local hospital emergency room, the response was swift. The number and variety of stories from people who had similar experiences continues to grow.

I have been going back and forth the last few months with kidney problems, I am made to wait in the ER waiting room at times for hours and then when I get inside, usually treated with disdain and indifference. On the floor is completely different, they couldn't be better, but, in the ER, they need to be retrained. There are some good nurses there I will say that, and some very good doctors, but, for the most part the nurses need to be retrained to learn how to triage properly and keep the druggies and drunks waiting while people like me with serious kidney problems, and pregnant women, and people with heart problems are seen first and as quickly as possible.

Fishing for the Future December 23, 2014

As the Newfoundland and Labrador fishery moves through a series of changes — in leadership at the Fish, Food and Allied Workers Union, in international trade deals, in changing stocks — The Telegram has pulled together a series of stories to place the present in context and provide thoughts on the future. The goal is to spark discussion on what we, as a province, want the fishery to look like, what we want it to be, what is possible.

You can READ HERE what some of the people working in the industry had to say, and reporter Ashley Fitzpatrick's blog offers a glimpse into the work that went into compiling this in-depth series.
