Our Journalists

Breaking a news story takes dedication, sometimes for years. It requires curiosity,
determination and a commitment to delivering the truth to a public who deserve
nothing less. Star journalists are held in the highest regard for their integrity, accuracy and relentless pursuit of news stories that need telling.

Catherine Porter is a columnist at the Toronto Star. She has won two National Newspaper Awards and a Queen’s Jubilee Medal. She was raised on stories of the Hungarian Revolution — her mother and grandmother were both 56ers, escaping to New Zealand before settling in Canada. Porter recently began a year-long leave from the newspaper, moving to Senegal with her husband and two small children. When not swimming and eating mangoes, she will be writing a book on Lovely’s Haiti.
