Steve Buist (The Hamilton Spectator)



"Steve’s commitment to journalism is perhaps best embodied in the groundbreaking series Code Red that began in 2010 and continued in 2011. The series makes connections between health, wealth and poverty and provides powerful data for decision-makers. It’s the first time such data has been published and the stories are powerful and life-changing.

"This year's journalism project was called BORN, a Code Red project and focused the connection between low income, poor education and birth outcomes. Steve relied upon exclusive access to 535,000 Ontario birth records to tell the multi-part series."
