Staycation guide

It's called a "staycation", and it's all about finding great ways to fill your summer while staying close to home. As thousands of tourists discover every year, Newfoundland and Labrador has breathtaking sites and a wealth of events to fill the hot and sunny — OK, and the damp and foggy — days of summer. We have collected a series of stories from across the province so you can see who is doing what, and where it's all happening. Now, get out there!

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.
