Storied investigative reporter and FOI specialist Dean Beeby retired from the CBC in April.
Sad day for the CBC as @DeanBeeby retires. Sadder day for Canadian journalism. He’s always been a hero of mine and it’s been a privilege to work with him in the bureau. I like to imagine he’s gesturing in this pic to say “why haven’t you filed an ATIP today?” pic.twitter.com/PmEghUBgIP

About to get sentimental. After 4 years, today is my last day at @vicecanada. I really can’t describe how lucky I have been to work here on amazing projects with colleagues who have inspired me every day.
Our team is tiny but we’ve always punched way above our weight. /1

Alright folks, this is it — my last day at the @TorontoStar's @starradiobox. From gut-wrenching school lock-downs to eyebrow-raising real estate listings to crazy cocaine busts, it's been a wild ride covering breaking news with some of the country's best journalists.

Forgot to make a tweet when this actually happened, but after two years of working at @TorontoStar, Wednesday was my last day! I came to the @starradiobox with a single byline to my name, and since then it's been a crazy ride, learning to report on crime, transit, politics, etc. pic.twitter.com/vntI5Fgo3v

Today's my last day with @StarVancouver. Had a lot of fun and learned a lot here. Hopefully my final stories on police accountability and violence within corrections make it through editing 🙂 Will be starting at @BC_Pharmacy on May 6 as a communications specialist. pic.twitter.com/NLXLQkRXne
