Why did you become a journalist?
I grew up in a prairie home where the radio was often on, tuned to news and crop reports, and the kitchen table was stacked with magazines and newspapers. My parents had their favourite columnists and radio commentators and, eventually, so did I. I was fascinated by the possibility that journalism could uncover secrets, reveal mysteries and shenanigans and, in the best-case scenarios, be a force for positive change. I still feel that way and am inspired every day by the work of my colleagues and journalists around the world who are trying to bring light to dark spaces and places.
