The Independent Goes Deep

48° 39' West; 123° 26' West

He may not be Charley Varrick, or even Oscar Madison, but he does it his way and now he's on top of the heap.

That's right - Sean Holman the Public Eye Guy was the big winner at last night's Jack Webster Awards.

Even more important was the story he broke, the malfeasance of Doug Walls. It's the kind of story that an independent and free press is supposed to generate regularly.

Unfortunately, the closed and coddled shop that is the mainstream Media in British Columbia has generated few such stories in recent years.

Here's hoping for many more from Holman and his ilk.
