Hard News & Investigative Journalism

I produced CTV News’ stories that exposed the Senate expense scandal, setting the course for RCMP investigations, criminal charges against three senators, the departure of the prime minister’s chief of staff, a comprehensive audit by the auditor general and reforms to Senate expense rules. The reporting was honoured by the Governor General of Canada with a Michener Citation of Merit for excellence in Canadian public service journalism, and won awards from the Canadian Association of Journalists and the Radio Television Digital News Association.
I led a CTV News investigation into the E. coli contamination at XL Foods, triggering the largest meat recall in Canadian history. Our work was recognized by the Canadian Association of Journalists and the Canadian Farm Writers’ Federation.
