Daily newspaper - Best news coverage: Multiple winners

“Tainted Water” is the largest project of its kind in Canadian history, bringing together more than 120 journalists, student journalists and faculty members from nine post-secondary institutions and six news organizations and their bureaus over a period of 18 months to report the series. In Ontario, journalists from the Toronto Star, Global News, Ryerson University, Humber College, National Observer and Carleton University, coordinated by the Institute for Investigative Journalism, produced a series of stories alerting the public to elevated levels of contaminants at taps in municipalities and Indigenous communities across the province, including lead, bacteria, trihalomethanes and more.
