Toronto journalist, author and acclaimed social activist June Callwood died this morning, aged 82. She was diagnosed with inoperable cancer in 2004 and had declined treatment.
Here’s her touching but powerful final interview with George Stroumboulopoulos of CBC’s The Hour.
The CBC website this week added a list of its most-viewed stories, sortable according to popularity over the previous 24 hours or previous seven days.
This is a good service (although not nearly as data-rich as the BBC’s) but it’s not easy to find. You need to be looking at the news front page (not the site front page) and, even then, the link is hard to spot as light grey text in a tab above the headlines list.
I’ve added a link direct to the CBC top stories list in the blog sidebar, where it joins the BBC and nzherald.
