• So we talked about a few things this week. 
  • It's easy to get all romantic about the idea of 24 Sussex. It's a 150 year old mansion on the banks of the Ottawa River and the official residence of Canada's prime ministers. It must reek of history. Or maybe it just reeks. 
  • We knew we were in for a wet and gloomy morning. Who knew it was going to turn into Bowling for Pedestrians?
  • I was on a panel in Montreal today when a text came in reading "all of the parties are the same, I wish this election was about issues". Please, you don't have to be a wonk to appreciate that this election is very much about three different parties, three different leaders and three different platforms. 
  • Sad news to pass on, Dorothy Jamieson has died. Although she left us at the age of 98 so I don't know that we can say she was stolen away. 


Born and raised in Montreal, John Moore arrived in Toronto in 2003 to take over the afternoon show on NEWSTALK 1010 but was already a regular contributor to the morning show since 1999 – the show he currently hosts. Moore in the Morning, the informative morning show airs Monday to Friday 5:30AM – 9AM.

John holds a degree in Communications from Concordia University and graduated from the School of Community and Public Affairs. He cut his teeth as a hard news reporter and anchor in the 1980s before moving into entertainment and arts reporting which involved fewer separatist rallies and more free wine. His movie reviews and freewheeling entertainment commentaries were a staple for years on several Montreal stations, NEWSTALK 1010 and Global Television.

John was one of the founders of the award winning On the Spot Improv and spent years playing reporters and evil lawyers in film and television. He worked as a director and reporter at the French language CBC for two years before they decided his accent wasn’t nearly as cute as everyone had thought. Moore also writes regularly for The National Post.
