Toronto Standard Clippings

For the second half of the summer, I worked at the Toronto Standard as a city hall reporter. This included covering the all-night deputations protesting the service cuts proposed in the KPMG Core Service Review, or “the citizen filibuster.” Here are some of my favourite pieces from my time there, just in case you missed them.

I also did some work for Spacing Radio and CBC’s As It Happens.
