NDP Refuses Press Access to "Scab" Reporters
NDP Refuses Press Access to “Scab” Reporters

No reporter representing the Halifax Chronicle Herald, the province’s biggest news organ not named CBC, was there to witness Gary Burrill crowned as the leader of the provincial party. They weren’t welcome.

That’s because the party won’t speak to any replacement reporter—”scab,” if you prefer—for the paper while its staff is on strike.
