Word got out today that Gazette business columnist Don Macdonald will be leaving the paper in two weeks to take a job at the Business Development Bank of Canada. Macdonald writes a weekly column on the markets and spends the rest of his time as a general business reporter. He’s been with the paper since 1997, and previously worked at the Winnipeg Free Press and Canadian Press.
He’s also very tall, yet soft-spoken.
His departure leaves the number of columnists named “MacDonald” at two, both of whom have the given name “Ian”.
