About me

I’m a regular opinion writer for Postmedia — my columns run in the Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto and Ottawa Sun papers most Mondays and they often go in all sorts of Postmedia papers from the Vancouver Province to the North Bay Nugget. And I contribute to other print media when I have ideas and opportunities. I also do regular radio commentary. You can hear me on John Oakley’s political panel on Global News Radio AM640 most Wednesdays from 5:15pm to 5:55pm. And I’m on National Post Radio Sirius XM 167 Monday from 8:00am to 8:30am (paired up with the incredulous Stephen LeDrew) and Thursdays from 8:45am to 9:00am for a one-on-one. I like to add as many other contributions as I can fit into my schedule.I’m currently a senior manager at an occupational health and safety training organization, but in the past have worked for the Ontario and Saskatchewan NDP, and various unions. My working life has always been closely tied to the social democratic movement. So is my commentary — and I am lucky each time I am able to contribute my perspective.Tom
