A very good year for the HMC: Our 15 most-read stories in 2015

KJIPUKTUK (Halifax) - The Halifax Media Co-op has been around for almost seven years, and  year after year readership is up. 2015 is no exception. Journalism (including citizen journalism) is alive and well in Nova Scotia. This year we featured some 420 articles and op-eds, by 60 different writers.

We think that’s pretty good. Sometimes we like to think we actually make a difference.  

A big thank you to our writers, our readers, our loyal supporters and of course our sustainers. We hope you have a wonderful 2016. And we hope that at times you will get an inkling to write for us. Remember, we pay!
