Kevin Donovan is one of Canada's best investigative reporters. A 30-year veteran of the Toronto Star, Donovan's dogged work broke two major national stories in the last two years: the allegations of sexual assault by CBC host Jian Gomeshi and the drug problems of former Toronto mayor Rob Ford.
Donovan exemplifies the best of Canada's traditional journalism as it adapts and innovates amid the current revolution in mass media. He has won three National Newspaper Awards, two Michener Awards and three Canadian Association of Journalists awards. He is also the author of mystery novel, The Dead Times.
"Journalism is a calling," he has said. "Enjoy the ride."
This event is being held at the Orpheum Annex, a new theatre space in Vancouver. Attendees are invited to arrive any time after 6 for socializing and drinks, which can be taken into the theatre when the talk starts at 7. There will also be time to do more of the same afterwards.
