The Halifax Examiner relies solely on the support of readers. By subscribing, you’ll be funding a strong, independent media voice in Halifax.
We are dedicated to opening up government, exposing wrong-doing and advocating for the common person. We’ll pry the lid off Halifax City Hall and give a fresh look into Province House. We’ll continue the campaign to make police records public. We’ll unwind the cosy relationships between government, quasi-governmental agencies and corporations that often determine public policy with their own interests in mind, and not those of the public.
Thanks for your support, and thanks for reading. View subscription options
“Bousquet has had more journalistic impact on the community than most well-staffed, well-funded newsrooms. His research leads to his personal conclusions, which open issues to public discourse.”
—Costas Halavrezos, former host of CBC’s Maritime Noon, present-day spice merchant
“Tim Bousquet is crusty, smart, diligent, determined and contemptuous of pomposity and dishonesty.If those sound to you like the qualities of a first-rate investigative reporter, you’re right — and we’re lucky to have Bousquet’s laser gaze directed at the dark corners of our own complicated little city. Hang on! This should be an exhilarating ride.”
—Silver Don Cameron, Host and Executive Producer of The GreenInterview.com, author, academic, former CBC reporter, former executive of the Writers Union of Canada.
“Tim is a dogged, tenacious reporter, a guy who combines old-school, shoe-leather muckraking with an open-minded, intellectual curiosity about the ways that journalism is evolving in the Internet age. He is, hands down, Nova Scotia’s best investigative journalist, as his track record of blockbuster scoops shows. He’s single-handedly influenced politics in Halifax and the province at large, holding the powerful accountable for their transgressions and blunders, and bludgeoning transparency out of a government that prefers to conduct its business within a cozy insider’s world. By subscribing to the Examiner, you’ll not only be supporting an essential contribution to civic life, but you’ll also be at the coal face of some of the most interesting and useful journalism in town. I can’t wait to see what Tim comes up with next.”
—Matthieu Aikins, reporter in Kabul, Afghanistan and winner of the Polk Award and the Medill Medal for Courage in Journalism for uncovering evidence of war crimes in Afghanistan.
