Paul McLeod Ottawa bureau chief for the Halifax Chronicle Herald, All of his tweets
"NDP members of Parliament have been directed not to speak to me because Chronicle Herald press operators lockout."
"Apparently speaking to a reporter who works for such an organization counts as crossing the picket line."
"As I'm the only Herald worker in Ottawa, they're essentially enacting a one-man boycott against me for now."
"Sorry Nova Scotians, but if you're wondering what the official opposition thinks of policies apparently I won't be able to tell you."
"I feel like Sun News all of the sudden."
"Cannot wait for the next time an NDP press sec talks to me about how they don't get enough coverage in my stories."
Freelance reporter Justin Ling just tweeted in response
"I will also be respecting the instructions of the union bosses and will not speak to @pdmcleod until the Chronicle Herald lockout is over."
