Empowering the Senate March 19, 2012

On Monday, in an unprecedented collaboration among Atlantic Canadian newspapers, The Telegram began a detailed examination of the Canadian Senate.

For five days next week, along with The Telegraph-Journal of Saint John, The Daily Gleaner of Fredericton, The Times and Transcript of Moncton and The Guardian of Charlottetown, The Telegram will carry articles that we have developed together. On the sixth day, next Saturday, we will publish an unprecedented joint editorial.

Our daily newspapers believe the Senate can be reformed to more eloquently represent our provincial and regional interests. We believe the Prime Minister’s willingness to have each province, in effect, choose its own senators is an opportunity of historic importance. Among Atlantic governments, only New Brunswick has recognized the importance of this moment.

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.
