Best of in 2015

Some of our editors on at a protest in 2015 supporting the striking workers at Crown Can in Toronto, Ontario

2015 was a big year We posted 330 stories, videos, interviews, news updates and job posting this year. 145 of those were original stories, news reports or interviews. We had 68 different authors writing for us. We also added a new amazing editor to our team, Tara Ehrcke, while also having three writer/organizers, Shay Enxuga, Daniel Tseghay and Denise Leduc, working for us at various points throughout the year.  Our readership has also continued to grow.  Thanks to all those who have contributed, either though their money or their labour, to this year. Without our writers, donors, and readers we could not have achieved all that we did in 2015. To celebrate our achievements the editors have chosen their top three stories of the year.
