Background: Linda Gibbons, a controversial pro-life protester, was arrested on Oct. 15, 2008 for violating a 1994 temporary injunction which protects several downtown Toronto abortion clinics. I was the only journalist to cover Ms. Gibbons' arrest outside the Scott abortion clinic. One of these photos was republished inThe National Post. Please click here to see the photo.
Background: Less than two months into my stint at The Jordan Times, I covered my first hard news story: the aftermath of the 2005 terrorist attacks in Jordan. I was assigned at three hospitals and reported same-day stories for about a week on the survivors and their families. I also reported on two protest rallies against the perpetrators of the attacks.
