National Post editor Steve Meurice is leaving the company, effective today. With his departure, we have lost a terrific editor, friend and colleague.

In his 17 years here, Steve has provided superior editorial leadership through often difficult times and helped make the National Post and Financial Post essential reads in print and digitally.

Please join me in thanking him and wishing him well in his next endeavour.

In the interim, I will act as editor of the Post until a permanent replacement is named.

A town hall will be held in the Post newsroom at 3:05 today.
