John Valorzi, who was business editor of The Canadian Press from 1996 to 2012, died earlier this week at the age of 65.

“In 1987, he became CP’s Washington correspondent and went on to roles as Ontario news editor in 1991, Halifax bureau chief in 1993 and Toronto business editor from 1996 until retirement.

“‘Whether you loved him or feared him, there is no doubt he shaped you into a better journalist.'”
