Editorial staffers departed in a round of layoffs at iPolitics the month after Torstar acquired the Ottawa-based news outlet.
Yes, I did lose my job. Sad to leave iPolitics. Not sure what’s next but hoping to find a way to continue covering the public service. https://t.co/p3KHBBJIa1 #cdnpoli

The rumours are true. There was a layoff at IPolitics today, and I was one of the casualties. I had a short stint on the Hill but it meant everything to be given the opportunity so early in my career. Thank you to everyone who sent a kind word today. #cdnpoli
