Megan DeLaire, who covered our neighbourhood for Toronto.com and their community papers, has been reassigned to cover COVID for their community new sites.
As of today, I no longer report for https://t.co/lisSDxUNZ5 or the @YCCNV. In response to shifts in our media landscape and in general, I have been reassigned by Torstar to report on #COVID19 for all of the company’s community news websites.

DeLaire wrote great stories about air pollution in York South–Weston, the extremely large Greenland Farms development, the local schools, the impact of construction on local business, flooding, climate leadership, Frontlines, tenant organizing, the IB program, and the Kitchen Masters program. She was also quarantined after being exposed to the corona virus.
She wrote with compassion and support for the community, and she always got her facts straight. I’m very sorry to see her leave us.
