We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Tony Westell.

A lifelong newsman and journalist, Anthony Westell joined the Globe and Mail in 1956, becoming a member of the editorial board, and then Ottawa Bureau Chief. He joined the Toronto Star as the national affairs columnist in 1969 and later moved to Carleton University's prestigious Journalism school to teach his profession. Eventually, he moved on to become director of the School of Journalism and Associate Dean of Arts.
