It is my honour to recognize the Canadian Press this year with the President’s award. For more than 100 years, The Canadian Press has been bringing news to Canadians from across the country and around the world. We have all come to rely on CP for editorial expertise and knowing the journalism is first-rate. How many times in my career have I reached for the CP Style Guide, or asked “what is CP reporting?” Thank you Malcolm Kirk for your continued support of RTDNA Canada and Congratulations to Canadian Press!
– Fiona Conway, President, RTDNA Canada
