CFB Trenton and Syrian Refugees

Last week I went to CFB Trenton along with Maclean's writer Meagan Campbell to see how the base and the city of Trenton were preparing for the arrival of refugees.

This isn't the final stop for refugees, instead it's just the start of their trip to Canada. Driving into the base, with its imposing airplane hangers, strong-wordeded military signage and barb-wire fences, I tried to imagine what arriving in this strange place is going to feel like - relief, fear?

When Meagan spoke with people in town, the reaction was mixed and it was interesting to see how people are responding to the idea of refugees coming to Canada. Generally people seemed to want to help but were a little fearful and upset at the money being spent. I know that I'm incredibly proud of our country for bringing the refugees here and I can't wait to see them start to arrive in Trenton and then onto their final destinations scattered across Canada.

Maclean's University Guide - Simon Fraser University

I had a chance to photograph at Simon Fraser University for Maclean's University Guide in the fall, including their women's basketball team working out, their fairtrade Starbucks, some of their innovative research projects and their on-campus Bitcoin machine, the first in North America.

NDP Final Rally

It's been a long election. It was hot and still very much summer when it was called and now it's cold and decidedly fall, feeling like it's verging on winter.

The election has come and gone but on Sunday I photographed the NDP's final Toronto rally for Maclean's. It seemed only fitting that the rally was held during the marathon given the marathon length of this campaign.

The Legacy of Jack Layton

I recently travelled to Hamilton for Maclean's to shoot a story on Jack Layton's lasting legacy and continued impact on this federal election campaign. Layton might be gone but his impact is still clearly felt by NDP supporters across the country.

It was a rainy night, so door-to-door canvassing was canceled but that didn't stop NDP volunteer Pat File from coming out to knock on doors around the neighbourhood to make the case for the NDP, and she says that Layton's memory is what inspires her to keep going. You can read the Maclean's piece here.
