Ottawa police pay tribute to transgender victims

Each year, the GLBTQ community and its allies honour victims of hate crimes with the Transgender Day of Remembrance. (For more information, read on at the website for the TDOR.)

This past November, Ottawa police held a commemorative ceremony as part of a program to recognize diversity in the Ottawa community. This ceremony made history as the first official Canadian organization to acknowledge the day.

I covered the event for Centretown News, a publication based in Ottawa.

Choose to Move PSA

Choose to Move is a public service announcement my television reporting group created in early January, 2011. The ladies featured in the video are our teammates: the jogger is Lauren Mitsuki, the cyclist is Marissa Decina, and the third character is yours truly.

“Choose to Move” is a campaign we created based on statistics about the small number of Canadians getting the recommended amount of exercise.
