Toronto Star reporter Michelle Shephard is leaving the newspaper. Read her whole Twitter thread about her departure.
*Please indulge me with this sentimental thread*
Well, the time has come. July 1st is my last day at The Star. It’s mainly me, not you @TorontoStar. Can you believe it has been 23 years since we first met? So many good years. You’ll forever be my first #journalism love.
