Area of Expertise

Urban Affairs reporter
Oliver Moore has been writing about urban issues since 2013, first with a focus on transportation and more recently as a national reporter covering cities. He writes about the sociology of cities - which are home to 80 per cent of Canadians - how they work and how we live in them. He has done in-depth work on pedestrian safety, suicide involving transit vehicles and distracted driving. A recent focus has been the unsustainability of sprawl (1, 2, 3). Before taking on his current role, Oliver was a general assignment reporter and The Globe's Atlantic Bureau chief. Across his career, he has reported stories from many foreign countries.

Why did you become a journalist?

Journalism allows me to hold the powerful to account, explain things that people may find confusing and shine a light into dark places. AI can’t do that. So, thanks to everyone whose loyal reading allows me to continue in this role.
