Patrick Cain

National Online Journalist, News

I’ve been an online writer and editor in Toronto since 2001, most recently at, where I’m a national online reporter. As well as traditional reporting techniques, I have experience in data journalism, access-to-information requests and maps and visualizations. Current microbeats include: cannabis, digital privacy and online disinformation.

Along the way I’ve picked up some awards, and started the ball rolling on an access-to-information case that ended in the Supreme Court.
