  2. Hi Fabiola,

    I’m a reporter with Radio Canada International based in Ottawa.
    RCI broadcasts in eight languages on the internet, the main network and on short wave radio. I work both for the french and english section of RCI.
    I’m doing a story about the reactions generated by the recent article in the Washington Post about Ottawa.
    In my research, I came across your comment on the internet summarizing the article while solliciting input from people.
    Would you be available for a short radio invu..not live…over the phone to share your comments? Have people responded?
    You can reach me by email or by phone at 613-288-6556.

    Best regards!


    Valérie Morand
    National reporter

  5. Hi Fabiola,
    I am a Photojournalism major at Metropolitan State College of Denver. I saw the title to your latest blog on the home page of wordpress and it got me interested. I am glad I decided to click on it because your whole set up has given me a better idea how to present myself on here. I’m very impressed by how many hits you have. I’m still a newbie to the whole blog thing. I started it to try and get my work and name out there. I’m planning on graduating in 2 years and I hope I can get as much experience as you have right now in that amount of time. Thank you for setting such a great example for me. I will continue to read what you post.

  6. Hi Fabiola,
    I work for Grey House Publishing Canada and we produce an annual catalogue; every year we like to feature a Canadian library or museum on the cover. I came across your picture of the Vancouver Anthropology Museum and I think that it would make a fantastic cover image for the 2014 catalogue.
    We would like to use the image titled “In the great hall of the museum” you have from a blog entry on February 25, 2010. I am wondering if you would give us permission to do so. We would need the image as a high-res file and we may need to manipulate the file slightly to include our logo directly under the library, but we can discuss what you think is appropriate. As this is a time sensitive issue, please respond to me as soon as possible.
    My contact details are as follows:
    Caitlin Beatty
    Grey House Publishing Canada
    Phone: 416-644-6479
    Fax: 416-644-1904

    I really hope that we can use this image for our catalogue! Look forward to hearing from you,
