When journalism needs
a second opinion
When journalists act responsibly, I defend them. When they do wrong, I can be their sternest critic. When they want to learn to get better, I show them how.
My unique journalism experience makes me sought after as an expert witness in legal proceedings involving issues of journalistic practice like libel and protection of sources. I am also an award-winning writer who acts as a trainer and consultant to newspapers, television networks and community groups across Canada.
