Last year marked a new low for freedom of expression in Canada according to Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE)’s 2015 Review of Free Expression in Canada. The sixth annual report provides a comprehensive and in-depth analysis on the state of free expression in the country over the past year. The 2015 report shows that the federal government refuses to release data that should be public and has cut research funding that does not support its economic agenda. Years of government neglect and interference have left the country’s access to information system ineffective and out-of-date. This year’s CJFE Review also includes a report card grading Canadian institutions and a national poll of Canadian opinions and concerns about current free expression issues.

Toronto Star journalist Barbara Turnbull died on May 10 from complications related to pneumonia. She was 50 years old. Turnbull was gunned down in 1983 during a convenience store robbery, a violent incident that left her quadriplegic. Following her inspirational recovery, Turnbull attended Arizona State University and obtained a BA in journalism. She graduated in 1990 and joined the Star shortly afterwards as a general assignment reporter. Turnbull was with the paper for over two decades, writing most recently for the Life section on a variety of health topics such as organ and tissue donation and transplantation and accessibility issues. She founded The Barbara Turnbull Foundation to generate support for Canadian research on spinal cord injuries through which she raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for research. In 2012 Turnbull was awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
