Cloe Logan’s hard-hitting expose, “Investigation: Past safety violations loom large over the reopening of Canadian coal mine,” has been nominated for an Atlantic Journalism Award in the Enterprise/Longform category. Cloe’s nation-rocking investigative reporting is up against the CBC and the Atavist Magazine in this category and is one in a three-part series. (Be sure to check out Part 2 and Part 3, too.) She is also a finalist for the Metcalf Foundation’s 25th annual science immersion workshop for environmental journalists.

Our urban Indigenous reporter Matteo Cimellaro, based in Ottawa, was honoured by the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) with a nomination for its Emerging Indigenous Journalist Award. Matteo’s reporting, “Native American Journalists Association bars New York Times from its conference over harmful coverage,” was one of the stories that earned him the nomination.

Marc Fawcett-Atkinson and former CNO reporter Jessica McDiarmid’s piece, “Right-wing operatives masquerading as local grassroots groups on Facebook,” has been nominated for a CAJ award in the coveted Scoops category.

The Atlantic Journalism Awards and the CAJ will announce the winners in mid-April.

The superb reporting by our journalism team is made possible by our readers, paying subscribers, philanthropic collaborators and our first-rate team of editors, who provide the scaffolding for the complicated architecture of climate journalism — the news, analysis, opinion, podcasts and newsletters, as well as the reporting on politics, disinformation, food security and human rights – produced every week by Canada’s National Observer.

Sixteen years ago, when I founded Observer Media Group, I never could have imagined in my wildest dreams how much impact our platform would have across Canada on a daily basis. Individually, each of CNO’s journalists, editors and producers are brilliant. Together, GENIUS.

Canada’s National Observer produces news for a changing climate and narratives that empower people to act.
