Tara Singh Hayer Memorial Award

  • Michel Auger

    An attempt was made on the life of crime reporter Michel Auger on September 13, 2000, just one day after a two-page investigative piece on the biker war in Quebec appeared in Le Journal de Montréal, the province's largest newspaper. The attack angered and shocked journalists and the general public across Canada. The attack on Auger was interpreted by police as an attempt to silence the journalist and stop his relentless coverage of the biker wars in the province.
