Community Editor Andrew Philips is a multiple award-winning journalist whose writing has appeared in some of the country’s most respected news outlets.
His 20-year career as a daily newspaper reporter (which also included a stint as a broadcast journalist at CBC Radio) took him to Ottawa, Brockville, the Maritimes and Québec City while also travelling to Europe and the United States to file stories. Over the years, he has covered every type of story imaginable and helmed a wide range of beats, including education, health, courts and business.
Originally from Midland, Philips returned to the area from Québec City a decade ago after he and his wife Lise decided it was the best possible locale to raise their three daughters Josée, Carmelle and Mathilde.
He has written extensively for regional and national publications since returning.
