Former Halifax journalist Hilary Beaumont has grown into one of the few dedicated environmental reporters in Canada.
Now based in Toronto and writing for Vice News, Beaumont has recently covered stories such as the Standing Rock protests in South Dakota, the Arctic’s rapidly-melting permafrost, and the ridiculous number of permanent boil-water advisories across the country.
Also, the Centre Plan and its many exemptions limps toward a final approval in 2018, how will it look for Haligonians to get high, and Matt Whitman’s weekly dose of dumb, dumb shit.

Terra Tailleur, I really like the idea of being mindful of when adjectives are used, as they can or should be “red flags”. I’ll note that “rule of thumb” has its own baggage, whether more political than accurate from a historical perspective. How metaphors infuse our everyday language is quite fascinating. I enjoy hearing your voice.
