The Canadian Association of Journalists’ annual awards program recognizes the best in Canadian journalism—with a particular focus on investigative journalism.
This year, Capital Daily’s investigative reporter, Tori Marlan, and managing editor, Jimmy Thomson, received multiple nods for their outstanding reporting among other accoladed journalists.
Tori is an award-winning journalist whose stories expose abuses of power, illuminate subcultures, and profile fascinating but unheralded people. Tori is nominated for the “Community Written” category as the only reporter with two distinct nominations for her outstanding work, “How Thousands of Canadian Care Home Residents are Being Sedated With Potentially Deadly Drugs” and “The Behind-the-Scenes Story of How Ignored Warnings at William Head Allowed a Killer to Escape”, both for Capital Daily.
Meanwhile, Jimmy’s unwavering dedication to uncovering important untold stories, such as his investigation in The Narwhal into an Iranian scientist’s lifelong determination to helping Indigenous populations, landed him nominations across three categories - “Daily Excellence,” “Labour Reporting,” and “Environmental & Climate Change.”
With 50,000 subscribers to their daily newsletter, Capital Daily is Victoria, BC’s go-to source for in-depth, investigative reporting and storytelling about the community.
