There was also a big departure at the National Post:
So it looks like today is my last day at the at the @nationalpost. Time for me to pursue some other projects, I think. Lots of love to all my colleagues. Great editors. Great people. Great paper.

So. The day has come. After nearly 11 years of serving the city of Calgary as editor of @metrocalgary – I have been relieved of my duties.
It has been an honour and privilege to serve you all.
And you haven't heard the last from me.

Word is out. In 2 weeks I’ll officially be joining @CdnPress and the inexhaustible @stevelambertwpg to cover Manitoba. I have been extremely lucky to have spent the last few years with phenomenal journalists at CBC across the prairies. Excited for the new challenges ahead.

So this may be Ottawa's worst kept secret at this point, but starting Monday I'm joining the team at @CBCOttawa on the web desk. I understand they will also teach this print monkey all about the godless radio and television machines.
