With patented black humour, Jeremy will lead us down the dark and twisted alleys of a crime reporter?s life. From paperwork to prison visits, we?ll become one with the sordid underbelly of Vancouver. It?s Blood Alley, so we?re halfway there! Jeremy will also be discussing (and bringing a copy of) the publication ban on the Pickton trial. Dress: Clark Kent, Lois Lane, or Raymond Chandler. Ann Rule doesn?t know how to dress!
Bio: Jeremy Hainsworth is one of a handful of journalists writing for the international media from Vancouver. As B.C correspondent for the AP, he has had the dubious honour of covering the ongoing hearings of alleged serial killer Robert Pickton and the Air India terrorism case. He has freelanced for Reuters, was senior crime reporter for The Calgary Herald, senior editor of Sterling News Service (his office was below that of Conrad Black's partner David Radler), and managing editor of the Dawson Creek daily paper where he covered his first murder from seeing the body to the release of the convicted youths.
He has a diploma in journalism from Langara and a BA from UBC. His work has appeared in many of the world's major newspapers on every continent except Antarctica where penguins cannot read.
