In May 2022, Mark Collin Reid, Editor-in-Chief of Canada’s History, and special guest Peter Mansbridge, former chief correspondent and anchor for CBC News discussed journalism as the “first draft” of history and Peter’s new memoir, Off the Record.
This recording was made at a special virtual event for supporters of the Canada’s History Editor’s Circle. Three lucky attendees were randomly selected to win a copy of Off the Record, courtesy of Simon & Schuster.
