On Our Radar

The Telegram strives to keep the public informed, particularly when that information involves homes, neighbourhoods, security, social justice, livelihoods and pocketbooks.
Our reporters ask questions on your behalf on matters of public interest and policy, but the answers aren’t always forthcoming.
In order to shine a little extra light on stories where information is denied or deemed unavailable, or where those accountable refuse to comment, we’re introducing a regular feature called On Our Radar, to let readers know the efforts we’ve gone to on their behalf.
On Our Radar gives a synopsis of a story we’re following, lets you know the current status of our coverage, and explains who ultimately has the answers to the questions we’ve been asking.
We hope you find it informative and that it prompts you to ask some questions of your own.
Find out what’s On Our Radar, every week in The Weekend Telegram.

Does the “good faith” argument have any merit? In it-self : No ! Because le Code Civil du Quebec doesn't allow a contract to be reopened. A contract is a contract ! However, in 1999, Hydro-Quebec and Nalcor made a Shareholder agreement which was by it -self a breach in the 1969 Contract. The Contract had been broken. Because of this pecedent, Quebec Judges are now allowed to make any other changes in the contract, this including the energy price.

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.

Moose class-action November 12, 2014

There's an ongoing debate about the damage and injury done in this province when vehicles strike moose on the roads and highways. Why is this happening? How can the damage be reduced? Who is to blame?

The Telegram continues to follow the story.

Remembrance Day 2014 November 11, 2014

There are so many stories Telegram and other TC Media reporters, editors and photographers have published over the years of how war has affected the province and its people. From those who fell on battlefields, those who returned injured and scarred physically and mentally, those who were held in prisoner of war camps, to those who risked their lives to keep the supply lines going, to those who nursed injured soldiers back to health, and to those who worried and waited for word. From the First World WAr to the war in Afghanistan, on the sea, over land and in the air, so many Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have served and sacrificed for freedom and democracy. We continue to publish stories our staff uncover in honour of Remembrance Day, and offer this collection to help us all keep in mind the importance of Remembrance Day.
