This week we speak with author Ian Gill. An ex-pat Australian, Gill cut his teeth as a journalist with the Vancouver Sun in the 1980s before moving on to produce documentaries for the CBC.
In his 2016 book, No News is Bad News: Canada’s Media Collapse — and What Comes Next, Gill explores the decimation of the newspaper industry — including right here in Halifax. He also looks at new journalistic ventures and enterprises around the world and wonders which of them might be a good fit in Canada.
Also, we look at how the white elephant currently sitting half-built on Argyle Street could've ended up in a better-suited location where the Cogswell Interchange sits.
