Congrats to three Ottawa Sun reporters honoured Saturday at the Paramedicine 2010 Expo and Conference.
An Ottawa Sun story says Tony Spears and Doug Hempstead, and former Sun reporter Laura Czekaj, were given the Ontario Paramedic Association Media Award for proper use of terminology, consistent, informative, and accurate reporting about paramedics.
“We rely on paramedics for information on what is happening in Ottawa, so it’s immensely gratifying to know that we’ve been able to return the favour with accurate reporting,” Spears said.
The Sun earned three of the 10 awards.
The Toronto Sun has had a long and close relationship with paramedics, but there was that one front page photo of a patient falling from a stretcher that cooled the love for a while.
