This is an interesting new publication for anyone interested in policy,
produced out of Bridgetown, NS by Rachel Brighton.  

The Nova Scotia Policy Review

Read about our underwater heritage and the challenge of the Treasure Trove
Act in the first issue of The Nova Scotia Policy Review.  This new quarterly
journal also looks at the breaking of the old Environment Act and the making
of the new one; the cultural ripples from Trudeau’s first youth grant to a
budding actor; the true meaning of a balanced budget; provincial water
management strategies; industrial waste; the cooperative economy;
rationalizing rural decline; the long-term care industry; the education gap
in the Smart Province; creative municipal housing policy; real estate and
sustainability; and community employment. 

The Nova Scotia Policy Review gives policy makers and citizens a new forum
to elevate the debate and explore ideas circulating in communities,
academia, industry and other small economies like our own.  Each issue
presents a balance of opinion, analysis, reports and humour, with original
illustrations and cartoons. Its focus is on social & economic
infrastructure, government & citizen relations, industry & employment,
environment & resources, learning & literacy, community & regional
leadership, and arts & culture. 

Through its rigorous review of published material and canvassing of policy
positions inside and outside government, a wide range of perspectives are
gathered in every issue, to inform, provoke and inspire.
The inaugural issue of this journal was published this week by Finest Point
Periodicals Limited and is available by subscription at

Brighton, at editor at policyreview.ca or phone 902-665-4538.
