CJF to honour Michel Auger with Lifetime Achievement Award

Michel Auger, a longtime crime reporter with Le Journal de Montréal, has been selected as the 2015 recipient of the Canadian Journalism Foundation’s (CJF) Lifetime Achievement Award. Auger is best known for his exposés of organized crime and his coverage of the long and violent rivalry between motorcycle gangs in Quebec in the 1990s. In 2000, he was shot six times in the back during an attack by an unknown assailant, but went on to write several books, including his best-selling memoir The Biker Who Shot Me.

The annual award is presented by CJF in recognition of an individual who has made an outstanding lifetime contribution to journalism in Canada.
