My friend Tom Durrie has another interesting piece on his blog this week.
He notes the media splash around the success this month of Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov at Wimbledon; how these successes are feted as great Canadian success stories — and they certainly are — played endlessly on TV. But he goes on to note the complete dis-interest in the media in other equally valid Canadian successes. He examples Nicki Chooi, from Victoria who has just been appointed concertmaster of the NY Metropolitan Opera, and Yannick Nézet-Séguin who will take over as conductor of the Met.
These are fabulous highlights in any career, and I join Tom in wondering why they are ignored by our nation’s media?
