Today I say goodbye to my beloved CP family. For more than 20 years, I have had the privilege of working alongside the most talented, dedicated and fiercely determined journalists in Canada. While I’m starting a new chapter, a piece of my heart will always remain at 36 King. -30- pic.twitter.com/rRLfaWjXa9

🚨Some personal news: I'm leaving the CBC to join the @SenateCA as a digital content writer. It's been a privilege to work for the CBC, Citizen, and Metro over the last 7+ years. I'll miss the journo life but I'm excited for this new opportunity.

Some personal news: Today is my last day at @Chatelaine, I've decided to go freelance. I will miss my Chatz family immensely — I have worked on so many cool projects, edited so many amazing writers and given space to stretch my own writing while here.

You guys I have *news*
I'm excited to announce I'm joining @thenarwhalca as deputy editor, which is a fancy way of saying I'm looking for pitches on the environment, climate, Indigenous issues and all the ways those things intersect. Go see the new site! https://t.co/eO8Bof4atJ

🚨REALLY GREAT NEWS🚨
Our newsroom has been gifted with @bmahichi as our summer reporter intern. Please follow him, wish him well and answer all of his calls and interview requests.
(On a personal note, I’ve waited four long years to no longer be “new guy.”)

hey might as well try this: I start at the @WinnipegNews for the summer next month and I want to do stories that Winnipeggers feel need more attention/are important for the paper to cover. My DMs are open, and I'm willing to listen (that's about 99% of being a journalist).

Some (rare?) personal news: After a fantastic few years with CWA Canada, I'll be leaving at end of this month to join DPRA Canada's Toronto office to work on policy. I'll be forever grateful to CWA Canada for giving me my start, and for the amazing mentors I've met here.
