There’ll be two posts today, as last Saturday, Stephen Hume posted a goodbye to his reading audience. Here is the post I wrote for our project Facebook page:

I was really sad to see that one of my favourite Vancouver Sun journalists, Stephen Hume (who writes the Canada 150 column that includes so many of our authors), became part of the incomprehensible bout of lay-offs recently at Postmedia. That his departure is voluntary in order to leave open a position for a younger, upcoming journalist, is in keeping with what I see as a level of integrity that is far too quickly disappearing from journalism today. It is indeed a “dark day for journalism in British Columbia.”
