Really looking forward to a discussion on Edmonton's role in fighting addition/responding to the fentanyl crisis Thursday with @Scott_McKeen. Have questions? Email me ahead of time or join me Facebook Live at noon.  http://edmontonjournal.com/news/local-news/edmonton-talk-back-scott-mckeen-wrestles-with-edmontons-role-in-fighting-addiction  #yegcc #yegpoverty

What was your first job as a journalist?

Summer staff (reporter, sometimes editor, flyer collater and sales clerk) at the Shaunavon Standard in small-town Saskatchewan.

How is social media changing news?

Social media allows me to have an ongoing discussion with people who live knee-deep in the many issues I cover everyday.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

A quick email is great, or mention something when we met at an event and we can follow up later.
