Id Magazine Project
Features Editor: David South

In 1996 Id Magazine, an Ontario, Canada biweekly, was expanding and needed to improve the quality of its journalism, while making the difficult shift to being a more consistently professional offering. I was hired as Features Editor and set about quickly assembling a team of investigative journalists. My strategy involved targetting stories overlooked by Canadian newspapers and TV news. This led to a number of firsts, including an extensive investigation into Canada’s flourishing sex industry, the government’s addiction to casinos, unearthing a plot by neo-nazis to infiltrate Ontario high schools with hate rock, university students' catastrophic debt culture, reporting from the streets of Port-au-Prince, Haiti on Canada’s UN mission, and probing the government’s public services privatisation plans (including being invited to debate this topic on CBC TV’s programme, Face Off).
