Huh? Sounds like a giant step backwards. Wonder why?

Why? Because our industry is going through a very tumultuous time and there is a dearth of jobs right now. DT is a very talented woman. Rather than slag her publicly, try congratulating her. Are we really this mean in this industry? Think before you type.

"Are we really this mean in this industry?" Yes, we are, clearly. And it sucks.

Publishing industry is scrambling to jump on the next big thing. It needs to be both compelling, and, let's face it, profitable. 'Local' seems to be one of the buzz-words. 'Where Toronto' is a perfect fit. And Deb can take it to that next level. Congrats.

Sorry. Didn't mean to be mean. It is a giant step backwards but I missed the part where DT lost her job at Transcon. I thought this move was her choice. My bad. Good lady. Nice place to land. She'll be great.

A lot of us have had to take a step backwards in our careers, through little fault of our own. It's called the recession, and the implosion of print journalism.
