Her Excellency Adrienne Clarkson presents the 2005 Michener-Deacon Fellowship to Jenny Manzer, a freelance journalist from Victoria, British Columbia. (Background – Michener Foundation President, Pierre Bergeron)
Ms Manzer will investigate all stages of the federal drug approval process and provide realistic proposals that policy-makers can consider to develop a system that puts public safety first.
She received the Fellowship from the Governor General during a ceremony held at Rideau Hall, Ottawa, on April 14th, 2005.
This fellowship is to advance education in the field of journalism and to foster promotion of the public interest through values that benefit the community. Mature journalists are invited to submit written outlines for studies over four months that will strengthen their competence.
