Saving Journalism One Exposé at a Time: How Investigative Journalism is Turning People On Again

The Toronto Star’s Donovan is one of Canada’s top investigative journalists. He has won a slew of awards over the years — three National Newspaper awards, two Governor General’s awards for Public Service Journalism, three Canadian Association of Journalism awards. He has led the way on numerous stories of public importance that led to policy change, such as the ORNGE air ambulance saga and Ontario’s child protection problems. He was involved in the Star’s Rob Ford coverage. His work on Ghomeshi with Jesse Brown helped spark a national conversation about sexual harassment/assault and workplace behaviour. His kind of investigative work represents one important aspect of journalism’s future.
