Political cartoonist Michael de Adder made headlines internationally after he was dropped from Irving-owned Brunswick News Inc. newspapers in the wake of posting a now-viral image of U.S. President Donald Trump golfing over a father and daughter who were found dead in the Rio Grande near Brownsville, Texas. The Toronto Star will now be running his work in their opinion pages.

Personal note: This will be my last month at the Globe. After 10 yrs I've decided to take the buyout. I'm calling it my journalism sabbatical. It's been a privilege and an experience like no other. 1/x

After 21 years of ruining the Saturday mornings of Canadians, yesterday was my last day @globeandmail. I got to go amazing places and tell fascinating stories and I had brilliant colleagues. I’m grateful for many things but especially the people who trusted me with their stories. pic.twitter.com/30NQuYTWYA
— Stephanie Nolen (@snolen) July 5, 2019
Personal note: I am taking a voluntary buyout from @globeandmail effective Aug. 30. It’s been a fun ride — 30 years, 3 cities (Montreal, Ottawa, Washington) and 5,767 bylines. I'll still be writing about economic policy #cdnecon #cdnpolihttps://t.co/wBCE1JUUal

It is with a mix of joy and sadness that I tell you my friend and Montreal bureau partner Ingrid Peritz (@iperitz) is leaving daily fulltime newspaper employment to find a better work-travel-bicycle-ski-life balance.
I am delighted for her but also selfishly glum.

This is Gloria Galloway’s last day. She has written so many stories so well, with so much passion. There are plenty of Galloway bylines to come. But I will miss you girl like you don’t know. pic.twitter.com/66qYxc2J2R

Today is my last day reporting in Yellowknife, at least for now. I'm heading off to report — still for CBC North — in Whitehorse next month. Reporting here has been challenging in ways I didn't expect. It has also been more rewarding than I imagined. pic.twitter.com/iC4rNVFhWZ
