Royal Winnipeg Ballet Scandal

I'm proud to be a (small) part of this recent cover story for Maclean's about a scandal involving Bruce Monk, a teacher at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. The women allege that Monk took inappropriate photos of them when they were young dancers at the school and the number of allegations is growing.

I think that it was brave of these these women to share their stories so publicly (and their faces for photos) so I was particularly happy to hear that after the story was released Monk will no longer be working at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.

Chalk one up for the power of good journalism. Maybe we can change the world. You can read the piece at Maclean's here.
