TORONTO, April 30, 2014 /CNW/ - In recognition of the exceptional
enterprise reporting taking place across the country, The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) is proud to announce this year's recipients of the CJF Tribute to Investigative Journalism.
In the past, the CJF Tribute has recognized media luminaries or organizations for their impact on
the international stage. This year, in celebration of the remarkable
journalism taking place across the country by reporters, editors and
producers, the Tribute is recognizing journalism that has made a
difference in Canada.
"Despite all the doom and gloom about the media business, it has been a
truly remarkable season for investigative and enterprise
journalism—stories that exposed corruption and malfeasance, stories
that 'afflicted the comfortable and comforted the afflicted' in the
grand tradition of journalism,' says Bob Lewis, chair of the CJF.
Here are the recipients:
"SNC-Lavalin: Service secret"
Anne Panasuk and Luc Tremblay
"Mike Duffy Made Secret Deal with Harper's Chief Of Staff During Audit" and "Wright Worked with Two Conservative Senators to Reach Duffy Deal, Emails
