I write features for the National Post newspaper in Toronto, where I've covered, among other things, the fall of Rob Ford, the rise of Donald Trump and the growth of Canada's new right. I'm a former writer, reporter and editor for, among others, Canadian Business, Maclean's, the Edmonton Journal and the Tyee. I have lost major awards for foreign reporting and column writing and won minor awards for investigative reporting, feature writing, and public interest journalism. My writing on the Balkans has been translated into Albanian and Serbo-Croatian and published across Europe. I also write about books, prisons and other things.
