À la BSL: a new webzine to discover

Photo credit: Mélanie Doré

The return-to-the-land movement, the arrival of several public markets and the enthusiasm for local economy have influenced the subjects of this new 100% local webzine. À la BSL offers interviews with “ambassadors” from each region. Some were born there and others have adopted the region for its values, rich nature and wide-open spaces. Some have acquired businesses, others have developed their passion, but all have finally been able to “take the time to live” to the rhythm of the wind and the tides.
