Tyler Harper

I’m editor-reporter at the Nelson Star, where I’ve worked since 2015. Previously I worked as a sports reporter at The Canadian Press in Toronto for six years.
My reporting focuses on a variety of subjects, including affordable housing, the toxic drug crisis, climate change, politics, education and sports. I specialize in long-form journalism and have won multiple provincial journalism awards during my time at the Star.
