Awards & Recognition

  • Michener Award

    Michener Award for meritorious public service journalism

    Producer for 2013 Michener Citation of Merit presented by the Governor General of Canada — Senate expense scandal

    “CTV News was honoured for its news-making coverage of the Senate expense claim scandal involving Senators Patrick Brazeau, Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Mac Harb. It also revealed a backroom deal in which the Prime Minister’s then chief of staff personally covered the $90,000 that Duffy owed to taxpayers. CTV’s reporting contributed to significant action: investigations by the RCMP, the federal Ethics Commissioner, and a Senate committee; criminal charges against Brazeau and Harb; the suspension of three Senators — Brazeau, Wallin and Duffy — and the retirement of Harb; the departure of the Prime Minister’s chief of staff, Nigel Wright; and reforms to Senate expense reporting. Through its coverage, CTV demonstrated the important role that journalists can play in holding government officials accountable to the public they serve.” — Michener Awards Foundation
