Christopher Cheung reports on urban issues for The Tyee.
He is interested in housing, planning, diversity, change and modern life in cities and suburbs. 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 stories are “The Dictator, The Doughnut King and a Shop Called Duffin’s” and “The Mystery of the Baklava Man.”
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.
