Lack of Transparency Fueling Uncertainty in Resource Sector

This is our investigative story for November 2022. In this article, our investigative journalist attempted to find out more about the permit delay affecting the resource industry in our region. While he was able to update readers, a lot of involved parties remained silent, which led to him writing an op-ed as well, detailing his experience researching this article.
