political journalist Paul McLeod

Paul McLeod had a storied journalism career here in Halifax  – with stints at the Daily News, Metro Halifax and allnovascotia.com – before lighting out to Ottawa to cover national politics with the Chronicle Herald and, later, Buzzfeed Canada. Next month he moves to Washington, DC, to cover the U.S. politics and the presidential election.
