I was a Canadian Geographic Intern
I was a Canadian Geographic Intern
When I read yesterday's opening salvo in CANADALAND's series on Canadian Geographic, a jumble of thoughts and emotions jostled for attention. 

First, the petty side of me thought, finally – I was vindicated for thinking this was wrong all along. Second, the bloodlust kicked in as I thought of how this will be received at the offices of Canadian Geographic.

But soon, I started thinking about the people there and I just felt sad. That office is full of fantastic people and talented journalists, all of whom deserve better than what has been thrown at them by those at the helm. They deserved better when I interned there, too.
