Message from Drew Brown, Editor in Chief

In 2021, we stayed true to our mission to provide journalism that informs and empowers the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. 

We covered the federal election, the snap provincial election, 37 St. John’s city council meetings, and kept you in the loop with all the candidates in our municipal elections.

Between crucial coverage of Indigenous issues and the state of trans healthcare, to the Greene Report and Snelgrove trial – we covered issues that other outlets overlooked, from angles they didn’t see.

Thank you for contributing to this work, together we bring community supported journalism to everyone.
