The Canadian Reporter was the first comprehensive reporting and newswriting text written for Canadian students. The new edition continues on the strong foundation built by previous editions. It is grounded in the fundamental principles of journalism and the techniques for practicing journalism within the unique Canadian social, legal and political context. The newest edition has been thoroughly updated and refocused for the digital age. The authors encourage journalism that is independent, active, creative, knowledgeable and disciplined.
