HG Watson is Xtra's Toronto news reporter. Before coming to Toronto, she was the editor-in-chief of the Cord Community Edition in Waterloo, Ontario and rabble.ca's labour beat reporter. She has also done work for Hamilton Magazine, The Grid, Shameless, The Urbanite and J-Source, among others. An LGBTQ ally, HG loves writing about social justice, gender, politics and economics -- but she'll write about just about anything else you'll throw at her too. When not at work, you'll find her mellowing out in front of one of Toronto's many movie screens.
