Christine van Reeuwyk

I started in journalism doing hockey scoreboards and stories in Ladysmith before heading off to journalism school in Vancouver.
Now an award-winning journalist, I have worked in newsrooms from Victoria to Port Hardy and back again for more than 20 years.
Having served as editor and reporter for Black Press papers across Greater Victoria, I welcome story ideas and voices from across the Capital Region.
