    TORONTO, June 5 /CNW/ - The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) Tenth

together journalists, media executives, academic and business leaders to
celebrate and reward excellence in Canadian journalism.
    The Canadian Journalism Foundation is thrilled to welcome GRAYDON CARTER

editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair magazine and an Ottawa native, will be
interviewed live on stage by Gala Co-Chair, John Fraser.

excellence in journalism at a public event," said John Fraser, co-chair of the

news thanks to stars like the late June Callwood, Adrienne Clarkson and now,
this year, Norman Webster and Graydon Carter."
