We also emailed a call-out to Canadian contributors to cover important news about Canada, and the response was fantastic! We promised to highlight the Digital Journalist with the most Canadian coverage, and that honour goes to Andrew Moran of Toronto, who wrote on everything from job security to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's court case. Congrats, Andrew, we look forward to seeing more of your excellent reporting in the coming months.
