Ted Barris is an award-winning journalist, author, and broadcaster. For more than 40 years, his writing has regularly appeared in the national press, as well as magazines as diverse as Air Force, esprit de corps and Zoomer. He has also worked as host/contributor for most CBC Radio network programs and on TV Ontario. And after 18 years teaching, he has just retired as a full-time professor of journalism at Toronto’s Centennial College. Barris is the author of 19 bestselling, non-fiction books.
Not a soldier, but the soldier’s storyteller, not a veteran, but recognized by vets as keeper of the flame, he was one of 19 civilians presented with the Minister of Veterans’ Affairs Commendation. In 2012, the Air Force Association of Canada selected Ted Barris to receive Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee Medal.
