The Logic hires Snyder as Alberta correspondent
Canadian tech and business news site The Logic deputy managing editor April Fong and managing editor Jordan Timm sent out the following announcement on Thursday:
We’re thrilled to announce that Jesse Snyder is joining The Logic as our first-ever Alberta correspondent.
Jesse is currently a parliamentary reporter for the National Post, where he writes about the economy, the finances of the nation and global affairs. Over his 10-year career he has explored the intersection of business and public policy, in both Ottawa and his home province of Alberta.
Before moving east, Jesse was a Calgary-based energy reporter for the Financial Post. His coverage of the resource sector took him from the Northwest Territories’ diamond mines to Beijing and Hong Kong, where he reported on the rapid influx of Chinese capital into Alberta’s oil sands.
Before joining the Post, he worked for Alberta Venture and Alberta Oil magazines, and reported out of Colombia and Mongolia for an investor magazine focused on commodities markets.
Jesse is excited to return to Alberta to cover the energy transition, one of the country’s biggest stories. Canada’s economy has traditionally depended on oil and gas. What happens in Alberta in the years to come will have a profound impact on both our future prosperity and the health of the planet. Jesse will report on the rise of green technology, on how legacy energy companies are evolving and the emergence of new players, as well as the impact of all this change on the people and places that have depended on the resource industry. He’ll also cover Alberta’s emerging tech sector and the province’s push to attract innovative businesses.
Jesse will be based in Calgary, and his first day will be Nov. 15. Please join us in welcoming him to the team.
