Murray Brewster Books & Biography
Murray Brewster (Toronto) is the Senior Defence Correspondent with The Canadian Press. Since the Afghanistan War began, Brewster has logged more time on the ground in Afghanistan than any other journalist. While not covering the war in Afghanistan, he travelled to Ottawa, London, Paris, Washington and other NATO capitals. Some of the stories he has broken have rattled chains in Ottawa-Sean Bruyea, Pat Stogran, the role of CSIS in interrogations of captured Taliban fighters, and the clampdown on soldiers in the media. He has been interviewed on the CBC, CTV, and on CP's broadcast service, and has lectured to Canadian and American forces and journalists, and is the recipient of the Michener Awards for public service in journalism.
