They are the journalists who produced some of Canada’s most recent poignant and powerful stories. What challenges lie behind reporting these important pieces? From the first notion of an idea to its final fruition—and even after a story airs or is published—hear about the process and its results from three of this country’s top investigative journalists.
In celebration of International Women’s Day, join Robyn Doolittle, investigative reporter for The Globe and Mail, on the ‘Unfounded’ investigation; Tanya Talaga, reporter with the Toronto Star and current Atkinson Fellow in Public Policy, on her book Seven Fallen Feathers; and Connie Walker, investigative reporter and host of Missing & Murdered, a CBC News podcast on bringing the still unsolved Alberta Williams murder story to light. Matt Galloway, host of CBC Toronto’s Metro Morning, moderates this discussion.
Seven Fallen Feathers
Over the span of eleven years, seven Indigenous high school students died in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The seven were hundreds of miles away from their families, forced to leave home and live in a foreign and unwelcoming city. Award-winning journalist Tanya Talaga delves into the history of this northern city that has come to manifest Canada’s long struggle with human rights violations against Indigenous communities.
