Murray Campbell: why I got into journalism

I have been asked countless times over the years why I got into journalism. The question was sometimes posed by someone who wondered why a sensible guy like me would go into a business with badly paid jobs filled by scoundrels and malcontents.

Alumnus Profile: Brian Gable, editorial cartoonist for the Globe and Mail

Editorial cartoonist Brian Gable says his start with the “left wing, anti-establishment” Sheaf was “somewhat different” than his current employer – the Globe and Mail.

Gable will be the keynote speaker at the Sheaf’s centennial celebration on Nov. 3. Attendees can expect a lively discussion of Sheaf history with editorial cartoons for illustrations, and perhaps even some live demonstrations of his own cartooning skills.

Share your Sheaf stories: sordid, inspiring, hilarious, embarrassing, or all of the above… Anything goes!

Only at the Sheaf could I write a parody sex advice column every week, interview indie music heroes, and run for student government in order to write an article about the process, and then win. And I don’t even want to pursue journalism!

My time at the Sheaf proved to be a valuable experience chalk full of opportunity and amazing good times. I’m positive those of you who have worked or volunteered for the Sheaf have your own unique stories and experiences too.

We would love to hear about them!
