Here are some highlights of online video I have produced and stories that had a high level of engagement on social media.


  2. Cellphones give us the opportunity to respond to news as it happens. I came across this group of students and teachers who knew Nusrat Jahan, the victim of a bicycle crash, while I was walking to work. I cut a short video package and interviewed the family members for web, television and radio.
  3. As the story of charges against Ottawa police Cst. Daniel Montsion broke, I was part of gathering reaction. It was important to get the video up as soon as possible. This cellphone video was taken while I interviewed the head of the Ottawa police union with a traditional TV camera.
  4. Photos I took at the scene of the Glebe fire used to enhance the web story with a photo gallery.
  5. On the scene video
  6. I shot video at the scene of a late evening protest in Almonte, Ont. Residents who opposed a hydro dam said a rare dragonfly could be found in that section of the Mississippi River. This is some of the video from the scene that I tweeted, it was later used in the CBC Ottawa late night newscast.
  7. A little fun...
  8. The Kanata mosquito story brought a swarm (sorry) of social media reaction, not much of it sympathetic to residents. These photos helped bring readers into the story. I also retweeted reader reaction and advice -- moderating some of the bizarre comments (featured).
  9. I had some fun making my own Halloween costumes and inviting listeners and viewers to make their own and send their ideas via #yegcostume.

  10. EXTRA: A longer cut of an interview with a bus rider frustrated with construction detours on his commute. It was a well-informed streeter with a little personality.
