Ivor Tossell is a freelance journalist, columnist, commentator and instructor.
A regular contributor to The Globe and Mail, a national Canadian newspaper, he writes widely about politics, digital culture, urban affairs, startups, and travel. In 2012, he helped launch Random House’s Hazlitt digital imprint with “The Gift of Ford,” an e-book about Toronto’s notorious (and now former) mayor.
Recently, his writing has appeared in a wide variety of outlets, including The Daily Beast, USA Today, Report on Business Magazine, Maclean’s, Canadian Business, and re:porter, the in-flight magazine of Porter Airlines.
His subject matter this year has ranged from Toronto’s improbably famous City Hall to the endangered scientific research post at the Experimental Lakes Area in northwestern Ontario. From 2005 to 2012, he was The Globe and Mail’s digital culture columnist, and covered the rise of the Internet we know today.
Ivor is also an instructor in the journalism degree program at Humber College’s Lakeshore campus in Toronto.
He tweets too much.
