2013 Stephen Hanson Awards for Excellence in Journalism

The Canadian Bar Association (CBA) has announced the winners of the 2013 Stephen Hanson Awards for Excellence in Journalism.

They "recognize outstanding broadcast and print or web journalism that fosters public awareness and understanding of any aspect of the Canadian justice system and the roles played by institutions and participants in the legal system."

The award in the print category was given to Paul Webster of Vancouver Magazine for his article entitled The War on The War on Drugs that shows that many law enforcement officers are skeptical of current drug laws.

The award in the broadcast category went to CBC reporter Joe Schlesinger and producer Bonnie Brown for their report Truth, Lies and Confessions about false confessions.

The CBA website has a complete list of winners from previous years.
