Martina Perry holds up her Ma Murray for Best Environmental Writing.

Northern View reporter wins provincial award

Northern View reporter Martina Perry has been awarded home the Ma Murray Award for Best Environmental Writing.

The work of Northern View reporter Martina Perry has been recognized by her provincial peers as she took home the 2014 Ma Murray Award for Best Environmental Writing.

Perry’s piece on allegation of coal dumping at Ridley Terminals was chosen as the best out of all of the entries from newspapers in the British Columbia/Yukon Newspaper Association by a panel of independent judges and on April 26 she was on hand at the Gala Dinner to accept the award.

B.C.’s new Coal Harbour, which cited a number of sources on the Ridley Terminals worksite who brought forward the allegations, launched an investigation into the matter by both Environment Canada and the Prince Rupert Port Authority.

This is Martina’s first Ma Murray award.

Todd Hamilton, publisher of the Northern View, was also at the Gala as one of the top three finalists for the Ma Murray Award for overall Outstanding Column Writing.
