‘Deep Fish’ Revealed!

I was pleasantly surprised to be "revealed" as one of a local reporter's "favourite sources."

Every year, NOW reporters get a modest gift from the company to give to our best sources. While there were many this year, and it's difficult to choose, I've decided to give my present to Paul Cipywnyk of the Byrne Creek Streamkeepers.

Paul is always available for a phone interview, and he has posed countless times over the past year (and in previous years) for photos related to all the salmon stories we've done. He's kept us abreast of the latest developments within the stream-keeping community, and he was the one who forwarded us the email from Otto Langer regarding the leaked documents about the Conservative changes to the Fisheries Act. That was a national story, and we got it online before any other news outlet, but we wouldn't have done so if it weren't for him.

So thank you, Paul. Your efforts have made my job easier, and it's been a pleasure reporting on all the hard work the volunteer streamkeepers have done to make our waterways a healthy habitat for salmon.

Thank you, Jennifer Moreau! I've enjoyed working with you.
