The Team

We are committed to providing intelligent, nuanced and insightful journalism. We report with compassion, fairness and facts. We aren’t out to score cheap shots or take snarky jabs. Our community deserves better. We treat our readers the way we all deserve to be treated: with honesty, humility, a sense of humour and, most of all, with humanity.

If you have ideas on how we can work together, story tips or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you.
