Senator Enverga meets 2016 Marshall McLuhan fellow Gigi Grande


Ottawa, November 25, 2016 – Yesterday, the Honourable Tobias C. Enverga Jr., Senator from Ontario, met with this year’s Marshall McLuhan fellow, Gigi Grande of ABS-CBN News, in his office on Parliament Hill.


Ms. Grande received the award for her special and in-depth online and television coverage of the 2016 pre-poll campaign and the elections.


“I am proud to host Gigi Grande in my office here in the Senate of Canada, and to discuss matters that are near and dear to me in my current role in politics,” Senator Enverga said in a statement.  “It is journalists like Ms. Grande, and the essential role they play to inform citizens and to analyze politicians’ claims, who keep those in politics to task,” the Senator continued.


The visit was part of Gigi Grande’s two-week tour of Canada to speak at various academic and public events, and to meet with members of the Canadian media and public service.  The Marshall McLuhan Fellowship is awarded annually by the Canadian Embassy in the Philippines.
