so long Christie

Christie Blatchford and Louie Palu at Kandahar airport in 2006 by Jim MacDonald of the CTV

Toronto. I don’t often do a post on journalists, but Christie Blatchford is an exception. Here in the big smoke she is well known,  having worked for all four of the big dailies over the years. She was known by at least two of our speakers/members – the late Boris Spremo and Louie Palu, both newspaper photographers who covered world events.

Ms Blatchford succumbed to cancer  on February 12th  this year after a brief struggle. She was 68 years old. I first enjoyed her work when she was a columnist for the Globe.
