Loyd Chalmers Prize for Excellence in Journalism 2018


Megan Honan and Jacoline Loewen, Loyd Chalmers Prize for Business Journalism
I was delighted to award the Loyd Chalmers Prize for Excellence in Business Journalism 2018 at Ryerson to Megan Honan, a recent graduate. Megan Honan chose the flower industry of Ontario and how it has developed into a leader in the world. The article, “Growing an industry, one seed at a time.”

The Ticker Club dedicates The Goldring and Chalmers annual award to the memory of one of its founding members in 1929, Floyd Chalmers, former publisher and editor-in-chief of the Financial Post. The prize is available to students in clear academic standing who are enrolled in the bachelor of journalism program in the School of Journalism.

This award celebrates the life and career of Floyd Chalmers and is presented by the Ticker Club. Chalmers became a reporter at the Toronto News when he was only 17. By the time he was 27, he was editor-in-chief of the Financial Post. He became president of Maclean Hunter, which published the Post and Maclean’s,  in 1952, and chairman in 1969. He and his wife Jean helped set up the Canadian Opera Company and the Stratford Festival, commissioned Harry Somers’ opera Louis Riel and set up the Floyd S. Chalmers Foundation in support of the arts.
