Anne Leclair

Reporter

Anne has been working for Global Montreal since day one.

She started as an intern and then spent three years reporting in Quebec City, before moving back to Montreal.

Anne’s most memorable (and painful) news coverage was at the Summit of the Americas, where she was tear gassed during a live hit.

Her most favourite assignment yet was a series on “Day Tripping,” which she got to shoot and edit with her husband.

Anne has an undergraduate degree (Honours History and Women’s studies) from McGill University and a Graduate Diploma in Journalism from Concordia University.

Anne enjoys playing soccer, when she’s not busy running after her three children.
