"I had no idea I was coming to the equivalent of the Canadian journalism Oscars. Just to be in this room, vibrating with all this fabulous journalistic verve and passion and rigour and righteous zeal. Just when one is feeling demoralized by the plight of media, you come to this room, feel this marvellous surge and see the inventive ways that journalism is being reconceived as well as practised."
- Tina Brown, former New Yorker and Vanity Fair editor, now CEO of Tina Brown Live Media
