Covering Alberta and the West: Election 2019

May 9, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

With a federal election approaching, editors of five Canadian news organizations discuss their strategies for covering Western Canada. What are the challenges of reporting on key issues and of overcoming perceptions of unbalanced coverage? And does their coverage play a role in the growing sense of political alienation among some Westerners?

Join this special dinner salon event featuring an intimate discussion with Kenton Boston, vice-president of news and information, Western Canada, for Corus Entertainment; Lucinda Chodan, vice-president of editorial for Postmedia; David Walmsley, editor-in-chief of The Globe and Mail; Irene Gentle, editor of the Toronto Star; and David Skok; editor-in-chief and CEO of The Logic.
