TORONTO, Jan. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - A few seats remain for The Canadian Journalism Foundation's upcoming forum Fear and Loathing at City Hall on Thursday, January 19th at 7:00 p.m. at the TMX Broadcast Centre in Toronto. This event is taking place at a time when civic engagement is high but media relations with the Mayor's office are at a low.
Relations between the media, especially the Toronto Star, and the Mayor's office have been called everything from toxic to hostile to strained, but seldom cordial. The Star has been blacklisted by the Mayor. Political divisions at City Hall seem entrenched, angry and personal. All of this, at a time when citizens of Toronto are becoming increasingly concerned about municipal issues that impact their daily lives. Covering City Hall has seldom been more important.
The panel features ROBYN DOOLITTLE, Toronto Star urban affairs reporter; MARCUS GEE, The Globe and Mail's Toronto columnist; ROYSON JAMES, Toronto Star municipal affairs columnist; and SUE-ANN LEVY, the Toronto Sun's City Hall columnist. JACKSON PROSKOW, Global Toronto's municipal affairs reporter, will moderate.
WHERE: TMX Broadcast Centre (Gallery), The Exchange Tower, 130 King Street West, Toronto
WHEN: Thursday, January 19
Registration 6:30 p.m. / Presentation 7:00 p.m. / Reception 8:30 p.m.
Tickets are $15. Only a few seats are available so book now at http://cityhall.eventbrite.com.
