Congratulations to the 2019 CAJ Awards recipients!

OTTAWA, May 30, 2020 /CNW/ -A The Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 CAJ Awards for outstanding investigative journalism.This included presenting the McGillivray Award to Craig Silverman of BuzzFeed News, for his multi-part look at how one company successfully used Facebook, and fake news posts, to lure people into subscription-based services that only ended up ripping them off. BuzzFeed's work showed how the company even used Canadian celebrities to bait people in this country, and led to Facebook taking some action and the company itself falling apart.Earlier in the evening, Silverman's entry had been named the recipient in the Online Media category. The McGillivray Award recognizes the best of the recipients in the CAJ Awards' seven investigative categories.The Charles Bury President's Award, given under circumstances of exceptional merit to those people or organizations that have made a significant contribution to Canadian journalism, was presented to Jerome Turner, Jesse Winter and Amber BrackenA for their dedicated reporting and, in particular, for protecting the public's right to know how events unfolded at Wet'suwet'en.Due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CAJ Awards were presented online this year, with finalists invited to participate in a video conference that was also livestreamed on the CAJ's Facebook page. The event was MC'd by Vicky Mochama.
