Caravaggio’s Shadow: Il Tenebroso

TORONTO – One might convincingly posit that Michele Placido’s film about Michelangelo Merisi of Caravaggio is a work worthy of the Baroque Artist’s approval – were he alive today to view it.

Doug Small – A Life In The Newsroom

We publish this article from Blacklock’s Reporter, the only reporter-owned and operated newsroom in Ottawa.

Some months after I left television, a lady tapped me on the chest and said, “Didn’t you used to be Doug Small?” She remembered the 1989 budget leak story.

And he reiterated his commitment to a third referendum on Quebec independence if his party were to take power in the next provincial elections.
