The 2011 CJFE Gala: A Night to Honour Courageous Reporting

Thursday, November 24, 2011
The Royal York Hotel, Toronto

The event of the year for CJFE is always the annual Gala - not only a fundraising event, but a great opportunity to showcase CJFE’s initiatives and highlight free expression issues in Canada and abroad. The Gala Steering Committee had been planning the 2011 Gala since the 2010 Gala ended, with monthly meetings and several sub-committees dedicated to making this event an ongoing success. This year, the theme of the Gala focused on the uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa, and how these powerful movements have led to both the opening up of free expression in some countries, and severe restrictions and retaliation for free expression in other countries. As always, the evening was a well attended event with journalists and supporters of free expression honouring courageous reporters around the world.
