Warren Schlote is a reporter and photographer at The Manitoulin Expositor, where he covers stories relevant to Manitoulin Islanders and northern Ontario. Although he is not a true ‘Haweater,’ having grown up in Mississauga, Warren has embraced the dynamic nature of Manitoulin. His reporting ranges from covering church casserole dinners to racing to the scene of a shooting — often within the same weekend. Warren strives to distill complex issues into understandable stories and include the broader context of the topics on which he reports. His work has appeared with CBC, Jazz.FM91, magazines and online outlets.
