In the Spring 2011 issue of Coastlands: The Maritimes Policy Review, 
Deborah Stiles and Greg Cameron explain why our food chain is 
breaking down and why we need a new paradigm for agriculture. 
Susan Haley interviews Tracey Tomlik on urban agriculture and 
the media's view of mercury in fish goes under the microscope.

As wind farms change our landscape and deliver cleaner energy, 
who is benefitting most from these developments? Coastlands 
takes up this issue with Robin McAdam of Nova Scotia Power Inc. 
The Spring issue also pays tribute to Sharon Oliver and Viola Desmond.
