"Why do I support The Tyee? Because its reporting raises authenticity to a new level and channels the best of journalism on the wet coast." -- Peter C. Newman
A longtime writer and respected journalist, Newman is one of Canada's authorities on business, politics, and the business of politics. He has been publishing books exposing truths about the aforementioned topics since the late 1950s. Today, Newman is still writing and reporting (and reading, it seems), and has recently authored another book: When the Gods Changed: The Death of Liberal Canada.
