Mina Kerr-Lazenby, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter

Mina Kerr-Lazenby is a Local Journalism Initiative Reporter for the North Shore News who covers Indigenous affairs, community news and arts and culture, among other things.

Mina is originally from the U.K. but recently moved to Canada from New Zealand, where she had lived and worked for five years as both a senior writer for a magazine and a breaking news reporter. Her writing spans the worrisome, the weird and the wonderful, with past features touching on everything from crime and climate change to rising music artists and Red Bull Flugtag competitions.

As a big believer in “a person can be two things at once,” Mina is just as invested in the hard news as she is the arts, pop culture, and the odd stuff, and so welcomes tips and questions on the whole gamut
