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.
