Saying that it’s time to move on to other projects while ensuring that J-Source.ca continues “breathing fresh air,” the journalism website’s editor-in-chief, Ivor Shapiro, announced his resignation this week, effective in December.
Shapiro, an associate professor at Ryerson University’s School of Journalism, was a driving force in the creation of the Canadian Journalism Project and its websites, J-Source.ca (English) and ProjetJ.ca (French), three years ago. The list of individual and institutional collaborators has grown steadily over that time.
Shapiro’s explanatory note can be found here, while the job description for the post he’s leaving can be downloaded from the same page. A search committee, chaired by David Milliken of CNW Group, has been created to seek Shapiro’s replacement.
