Catherine Cano accepts the 2000 Michener-Deacon Fellowship from Her Excellency Adrienne Clarkson, Governor General of Canada. The photo was taken at the Michener Award ceremony held at Rideau Hall, April 10, 2000.
Ms Cano will use the 4-month study leave to examine the role of public television news in a time of increasing competition and globalization. In addition to a report for the Michener Awards Foundation, she will also develop articles for newspapers and magazines, and a documentary focusing on the future of public television news in Canada and Britain.
The Michener-Deacon fellowship is awarded annually to a deserving recipient and helps to advance education in the field of journalism and serves the public interest through the promotion of values that benefit the community.
