Black Friday at Postmedia
« on: March 24, 2017, 07:02 PM »
Today was an incredibly dark day at Postmedia in Vancouver where 54 staffers were let go.  29 were journalists, and one was our own Jason Payne.

I can't properly convey how heartbroken and disappointed I am/we are, but I do know that NPAC is here to support you in any which way or form we can, and we will continue the fight for strong and ethical journalism / photojournalism in Canada and beyond.
