Max Binks-Collier is a National Magazine Award-winning journalist who specializes in writing long-form features and investigative reporting. His work has appeared in The Walrus, Maisonneuve, The Canadian Bar Association National, and The Lawyer’s Daily, among other publications.
As a journalist, he thinks a lot about the philosophy and practice of journalistic objectivity, journalism’s potential to simultaneously be a literary artform and means of producing empirical knowledge, and the political and epistemic implications of various media business models. For him, the Centre for Free Expression is a forum for thinking through these topics and others like them with likeminded people.
Max has also researched Canada’s access-to-information legal framework for the Centre for Free Expression, reflecting not only his commitment to working with the Centre to produce information in the public interest, but also his broader interest in the legislation and jurisprudence that uphold—or undermine—civil liberties.
