About

Fisherman's Market: Seafood Delivered Overnight Throughout Canada

Nova Scotian-Halifax journalist Andrew Macdonald celebrates 32-years as a newsman, and the logical evolution of his news career has been establishing his own media company.

Offering Compelling Journalism in Nova Scotia Since 1989, Andrew owns  www.TheMacdonaldNotebook.ca , which was laucnhed in 2017 – and we move into our fourth year of independent publishing of Business and Inside Political reporting and we also write on cultural affairs.

Andrew is a business and political journalist, who frequently talks to the billionaires in the Atlantic, but is also comfortable chatting with fish plant workers in the region.

He has interviewed prime ministers and premiers, as well as business titans, the movers and shakers of the region.

If you enjoyed the popular Macdonald Report from 2014-2017,  you will really like the Macdonald Notebook, as Andrew goes into media ownership.

Erin O’Toole, a candidate for the national Tory party’s leadership remarked: “The Movers and Shakers read you, Andrew”.

With a knack for business and politico reporting, Andrew brings original story content from Nova Scotia to his new journalistic endeavour.

Sign up at www.TheMacdonaldNotebook.ca today – that is the home for Compelling Journalism in the Maritimes Since 1989.

Andrew was introduced to the news business in grade school between 1982 and 1986, when, as a paperboy, he delivered The Chronicle-Herald to over 100 customers.

Our Mission Statement

The Macdonald Notebook launched in 2017 and now publishes online three times a week: Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays, focused on Business, Inside Politics and cultural affairs in Nova Scotia & Halifax.

We specialize in news scoops – original news articles not found elsewhere.

Our mandate is to produce compelling articles – and we do not often chase or report on news releases or go to press conferences.

We rely on our robust news sources and our rich contact database to bring you unique news articles not found in other media.
