Remembering former Toronto Star reporter Paul Moloney

Paul Moloney, a masterful reporter who found front-page stories deep in City hall documents that few others bothered to read, has died at age 67.

Moloney, who retired from the Star’s City hall bureau in 2014, died late last month after collapsing in his yard in Toronto.

Raised in Peterborough, Ont., and Napanee, Ont., Moloney worked at the Star for 27 years, much of it in the City hall bureau, after a decade at the Winnipeg Free Press, and, before that, a summer at the London Free Press upon graduation from Western University.

The Star has published a touching look back at Paul’s long career. You can read the full piece here.
