Behind the Scenes

Back in June, we announced that we wanted to hire an investigative journalist. This was because of a combination of us wanting to delve deeper into the serious topics in our region, as well as feedback from you, our readers.

Thanks to all of our Supporters, we were able to raise enough funds to hire this journalist with the promise that the first series of stories will be focused on the health care system in Northeast B.C.

We are excited to have our first story written and available now for all of you to read. The series is called Code Grey, and it gets its name from the standardized list of codes used in B.C. hospitals, with grey being used to notify staff of a system failure. As many of you know, health care is a major issue in this region and this article details the current state of the health care system in Northeast B.C. by speaking with health officials, local leaders, health care staff advocacy groups and patients. You can read the story here.

This is just part one of the series with the next part planned to be focused on the history of health care in the north. This series is made possible and available for everyone to read thanks to our Supporters. If you believe in what we are doing and want to have more stories written about this topic and many more affecting all of us, please consider becoming a Supporter to help make this a reality.
