CJF J-Talk: The Stories Behind the Stories that Matter

Please note the tech issue: the music at the beginning will stop a few minutes into the talk. Apologies for the inconvenience!

Toronto, March 6, 2018 - 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.
