Such a great pleasure with work with Mary Walsh and her small guerrilla team on the Marg Brings Change campaign during the 2015 election. You can check out all the videos, memes and posters at margbringschange.ca. …and MARG!, Princess Warrior, didn’t have to smite anyone. Although the Canadian voter certainly smited Stephen Harper and the Conservative party. Canada now returns to regular programming.

For a long time I have lacked an outlet for my editorial photography and documentary work. With the collapse of news magazines, newspapers and just about every other consumer publication, clients and budgets disappeared. Quality journalism cost money to produce and few are willing to pay in the media business these days.
Well, I’m happy to say that I am a part of a new journalism website that is being launched tonight. It’s original, insightful, quality journalism by experienced and professional journalists, editors and producers from around the world. It will be a subscriber access and pay-per-view on October 1. Until then, it’s free for you to have a look around to see if you like it.
If journalism is to survive it has to be created and purchased as a valuable product by people who care and understand the role of journalism and reporting in our society. The “retail media” business model of using journalism in a bait and switch shell game to sell your eyeballs to advertisers is over. It failed. Welcome to the new journalism.

Terry Day at the 2013 Flatrock Climbing Festival in Flatrock, Newfoundland. Photo by Greg Locke © 2013.
Here is a photo gallery from Alpine Club of Canada’s 2013 Flatrock Climbing Festival in Flatrock, Newfoundland. This event just gets more incredible every year as the climbing sports become more popular and people discover just what a great place Newfoundland and Labrador is for sport and trad climbing. This year it was organized by the Newfoundland Section of the Alpine Club of Canada. As always, it had something for the hard core climbers and those curious to just try it out. ACCNL members were on hand to give instruction.
Flatrock is the most developed climbing area in the province so far but areas on the west coast around Corner Brook and Gros Morn National Park are being explored and large crags on the remote south coast of the island have been mapped and climbed. Major props to Beth Spencer and her merry band of organizers along with the sponsors who know a good thing when they see it!
