On January 21, James Ferrabee, a long-time Canadian journalist, died in hospital in Sherbrooke, The Gazette reports. He was 72.
Ferrabee began his journalism career at The Gazette in Montreal in 1958. Since then he has been a London-based editor for Reuters, an editor and editorial writer at The Gazette, Quebec correspondent and Ottawa bureau chief for Southam News. He was also posted to Kenya, Paris and London.
He retired from daily journalism in 1996 and co-wrote a book, Staying Connected: How MacDougall Family Traditions Built a Business over 160 Years, which was published last year.
David Yates, who succeeded Ferrabee as The Gazette‘s business editor in 1996 told The Gazette:
“He had a global point of view – and he was always very cordial about the way he shared it.”
