Tom Blackwell is the National Post’s health-care reporter, a position that he has held for the last five years. He considers this a crucial time to be writing about Canada’s health system, given its tremendous challenges and uncertain future. Tom has been at the Post since 2001, and worked before that at PostMedia News, The Canadian Press and the Regina Leader-Post. His career has spanned three provinces, financial crises that routinely threatened the existence of his employers and other print media, and a variety of beats. Those subject areas have ranged from politics, crime and law courts to immigration, prisons and the Afghanistan conflict.
