Journalists

A group of women wrapped in furs and warm winter cloaks stands on the quay at Boulogne. Around them surges a blue, red, and khaki sea of French, British, and Belgian soldiers. White-veiled nurses run alongside patients being carried on stretchers onto waiting ships. There are shouts, marching orders, and whistles as the women stand silently watching, absorbing the details of what they are seeing, overcome by the reality that they are on the doorstep of the Great War.

They are the first party of female Canadian journalists allowed into France to visit the lines of communication.

Super Hero Journalists

Posted on August 20 by Rick Revelle

I grew up reading newspapers. I loved opening a freshly delivered daily paper, it was like opening a birthday or Christmas present. The sense of expectation though for a newspaper was that every page held a surprise or a mystery either solved or insinuated.

    As a youngster fifty years ago I delivered the Kingston Whig Standard in my small home town of Wilton, Ontario. Thirty-four newspapers delivered over a three to four mile route. Walking in the winter and riding my bike the other three seasons. All for two cents a paper.

The Role of a Journalist

Posted on August 19 by John Scully

Ever faced a firing squad? Been stranded in the Sahara Desert? Bribed your way into a secret Russian atomic submarine base? I have in my career as a journalist that has taken me to nearly 80 countries and 36 war zones. Journalists are people who rush into places while everyone else is rushing out. Our job is to take you somewhere you haven’t been, show you something you haven’t seen, tell you something you don’t know.
