The Vancouver Courier was nominated for two awards in 2014 based on an extensive series I conceived and co-managed as one of the paper’s section editors. Every two weeks for more than a year, our team of reporters and photographers explored a single neighbourhood in our city of 600,000. From serious conflict and frivolous pursuits, unique characters and cultural changes, we shone our gaze on all things major and minute one neighbourhood at a time. Following this successful series, the slogan of the newspaper changed to “Voice of Vancouver Neighbourhoods” and then “Local News. Local Matters.”
