Holding Power to Account - a Postmortem

by Larry Powell As its name implies, the conference promised a lot.  "Holding Power to Account. Investigative Journalism, Democracy and Human Rights."   Big concepts. Big ideas.  And it delivered.  I am thankful to have been part of it. More than three hundred people from 15 countries attended the event this past weekend, sponsored by the CBC and University of Winnipeg. They heard Adrienne Arsenault, a foreign correspondent with CBC TV's flagship newscast, The National, tell a terrifying tale about an assignment she was on in an African nation.
