Quebec media (but not all Quebecers) shut out of CAJ award nods

The Canadian Association of Journalists announced the nominees for its annual awards, and Quebec media were nowhere to be seen.

Part of the reason behind that is that there aren’t any French-language nominees. Darn francos can get their own awards, dagnabbit.

But The Gazette, the community papers, as well as CBC, CTV, Global and CJAD news teams were also excluded from the nominations.

Still, there are some Quebecers on the list who worked for national media or media in other regions. I spotted two off the bat:

Perhaps there are others I’ve missed.

I’ll also take this opportunity to point out yet again that a list of journalism award nominees is issued and nobody thinks to link to the nominated pieces for people to read.

    I’ll restart the debate, and I’m not part of that industry but;

    Why no French award?
    Bilingual country my a$$.

    Why no Other language award?
    We have more other language newspaper than french or english put together in this multi cultural country.

    Why no “new media” award ?
    Blogs and websites deserves their award also, RueFrontenac is maybe a striked employees site, but it’s already better than Journal is anyway. Actual journalism happening there.

    I think that maybe it’s time to CAJ to realize where and when they are at the moment.
