Christopher Cheung reports on urban issues for The Tyee.
He is interested in the power and politics behind urban change, and how Vancouver’s many diasporas strive to make a home in city with colonial legacies. He previously wrote on these issues for publications like the Vancouver Courier (authoring a series called Talk of the Block) and Metro (authoring a series called Urban Scrawl).
His most popular Tyee stories are “The Mystery of the Baklava Man” and “Real Cities Give People Places to Pee.”
Cheung graduated with a master’s in journalism from The University of British Columbia in 2016. He was born and raised in Vancouver and still lives there.
