Star names new managing editor amid turmoil after reporter’s suicide

TORONTO – The Toronto Star announced a new managing editor Wednesday in the midst of personnel upheaval sparked by the suicide of a reporter.

Irene Gentle, the paper’s city editor, was named to the post by editor-in-chief Michael Cooke.

Her appointment came hours after the union representing Star reporters asked the newspaper to appoint an outside investigator to conduct an inquiry into events surrounding the death of environment reporter Raveena Aulakh, 42.

    I’m waiting for the Heather Mallick story blaming Harper and old white men in rural areas.

    So sad that is was not Heather Mallick that offed herself…

    Oh well. Hopefully the work environment gets even worse at the Red Star.

    was it really a suicide? Or was she helped?

    They should have hired Dick Hertz for the position.

    Then people would all ask “Who’s dick hurts?”

    It’s odd that a 42 year old woman would commit suicide after a break up. That kind of behavior is to expected more from a much younger person.

      Liberalism is a mental disorder. At the Toronto Star it is a complete and total basket case of mentally deranged radical leftists. Abnormal behavior to this degree does not surprise me in that mentally toxic environment they call the Toronto Star.
