A truthful and courageous journalist passed away today: Christie Blatchford. She will be sorely missed.
Wow, just learned of the passing of Christie Blatchford (I had no idea she was ill). A terrible loss for journalism and for true "equity feminism."
What a devastating loss to Canadian journalism. Judged on journalism alone, she was one of the best. Judged on a sense of morality, she was the absolute best. #cdnpoli
Ah, shit. Christie Blatchford wasn't always right (who is?) but she was an incredible reporter and she was tenacious as all hell.

Goddamn, what a magnificent obit. What a magnificent life.
There very few columnists working in Canada who are genuinely independent-minded, insightful, and fearless — let alone fun to read. And now there’s one less.
A sad day for Canada. Christie Blatchford was an amazing person, journalist and patriot. She made us all better. I’m grateful I had the chance to know her. #RIP
I can't believe it. She had the biggest heart of any journalist I've ever known.

In the early days of , newly hired reporters gathered in a restaurant to eat and drink. Christie Blatchford collected the bills and pulled out her newly issued corporate credit card. “Let’s break this f—er in,” she declared.
RIP Christie Blatchford. I hope you're running with Obie now. I'm going to miss those expletive-filled emails asking for old columns. Your ability to remember details some obscure court case from 1982 awed me. #journalism.
damn this is sad. I frequently disagreed with her opinions but I always enjoyed running into her at court, she was hilarious and charming
