Canadian Association of Journalists release headliners for 2018 national conference

The Canadian Association of Journalists is marking its 40th anniversary this year with a stellar lineup of keynote speakers.

The Toronto Star's man in Washington, Daniel Dale, will kick things off on Friday morning by reflecting on his exhaustive fact-checking of U.S. President Donald Trump during a tumultuous year south of the border.

Amy King, EIC of Washington Post's The Lily, will talk later on Friday about building a community where women can engage the news—and be empowered in the process.

And Katie Benner, a New York Times justice reporter whose coverage of sexual misconduct in Silicon Valley forced the resignation of a major venture capitalist, will round out the keynotes on Saturday.

Registration is now open for the event, which will be held on May 4-5 at the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Toronto.
