Volume 25 SUMMER 2023
The cover story of Volume 25 of this beautiful coffee-table magazine, is a travel guide to Saint Martins, New Brunswick, and the businesses that have opened or expanded there in recent years. A team of committed locals have worked tirelessly to ensure this beautiful village reaches its full potential, and it is the hottest new holiday destination on this side of the country. And — thanks to Spinney’s Seafood Market — arguably the best place in Canada to get a lobster roll right now!
Our Culture Correspondent, Thandiwe McCarthy, interviews Moncton-based rapper Michael J. Foxx about his life and career in New Brunswick, why he moved here from New York City, and how he has thrived since arriving four years ago. Jennifer Wood meets Miramichi mayor and award-winning film and television director Adam Lordon. Artist Yuzhu Yang moved to Prince Edward Island 10 years ago. The gifted painter was born in Guizhou, China, in a small village surrounded by mountains and valleys. Her paintings celebrate her past and embrace her new life in Cornwall, Prince Edward Island. Dylan B. Bradford has written an essay on Canada's oldest and most beloved record store, Backstreet Records in Saint John. And Darren Calabrese shares favourite photographs from his stunning new book, Leaving Good Things Behind, which tells the story of his move home to Nova Scotia from Ontario.
In short, this is your guide to summer in Atlantic Canada.
It’s all here in this bumper issue.
