Tony Seed
MLPC Candidate in Halifax
Tony SeedSince the 1980s, Tony Seed has actively worked to establish the anti-imperialist No Harbour for War program of the People's Front (Halifax, 1983) and to establish public discussion amongst workers, women and youth on this issue through such venues as the Halifax Political Forums (from 2003) so that Haligonians can chart out their own views on vital issues facing humanity.

As a former journalist with the Toronto Globe and Mail, and subsequently denied employment by the monopoly media for his views, Tony has played an active role in developing independent media and journalism which serve the interests of the people. He is the editor and publisher of Shunpiking Magazine and of the Dossier on Palestine. Through this and other work he and his colleagues have championed the rights of all; the hereditary rights of the First Nations, and the affirmation of the collective rights of women, youth and students, the working class and fishermen, African Nova Scotians and Acadiens, the impoverished, the disabled, and all others.

Associated with the motto "Friendship First, Competition Second" and a partisan of amateur sport, Tony is co-author with Curtis Coward of The Kids' Baseball Book (1994); a certified coach in three sports; member, organizing committee, Justin Coward Memorial Basketball Tournament (1999-2007); coach of youth in the Greystone recreation program; and president of the Nova Scotia Cricket Association since 1993 and co-founder-organizer of the annual Maritime Cricket Festival (1987-2008).

After living in Halifax's North End for six years, Tony Seed has been a resident of Spryfield since 1977.
