As a columnist, feature writer and editor, Ivor Tossell has made a name for himself as a journalist. A regular contributor to The Globe and Mail for a decade, he has also written for most of Canada’s major publications, covering politics, cities and technology. He also works as an instructor in Humber College’s journalism degree program. He helped to launch Random House’s Hazlitt digital imprint with his e-book about Toronto’s former mayor, The Gift of Ford, and has made regular broadcast appearances on TV and radio. Most recently, he worked at BuzzFeed in New York City as an editorial product lead, helping build one of the most popular websites on the Internet. At Vic, Ivor was the editor-in-chief of The Strand, before going on to co-edit The Independent Weekly. Shortly after graduation, he developed a content-management system for student newspapers that was sold across Canada. Shortly thereafter, he interned at World Agroforestry Centre in Nairobi, Kenya. This year, he came back to campus as a speaker with Forging Your Future, part of the Ideas for the World program. “Vic is and has been one of my favourite places in the world,” says Tossell.“I’m very happy to have been able to maintain a connection with Vic.”
