Jessica Smith Cross began her career in local news, reporting for Metro newspapers in five Canadian cities, as well as for CTV, the Guelph Mercury and the Turtle Island News. She made the leap to political journalism in 2016 but frequently looks back. Prior to the Trillium, she was the editor-in-chief of iPolitics and Queen's Park Briefing.
A media critic once said Charlie Pinkerton has “one of the best names of any reporter that I can think of.” He’s covered politics since 2018, spending since 2021 at Queen’s Park. Instead of running for mayor of Toronto, he helped launch the Trillium in 2023.
Like most reporters, Aidan Chamandy covers a lot of different topics but he specializes in energy and housing. He can usually be found looking for government documents on obscure websites and filing freedom-of-information requests. He also hosts and produces podcasts. He's better at being a Leafs fan than anyone else on earth.
Sneh Duggal (on leave) has been providing in-depth coverage of Ontario politics since 2018. Prior to helping launch The Trillium, her reporting included the impact of the pandemic on schools, health care and vulnerable populations while at Queen’s Park Briefing. She previously covered Canadian foreign policy and diplomacy for Embassy News in Ottawa and has reported for The Hill Times, Ottawa Citizen, Edmonton Journal and The Molokai Times in Hawaii. Sneh has also done radio reporting in Rwanda and enjoys podcasting at Queen's Park.
Jack Hauen has been covering Queen’s Park since 2019. Beats near to his heart include housing, transportation, municipalities, health and the environment. He especially enjoys using freedom of information requests to cause problems. Before helping launch the Trillium he worked at Queen’s Park Briefing, the Toronto Star, the Globe and Mail, and the National Post.
