UBCM Welcomes Convention Keynote Terry Milewski

UBCM’s 114th Annual Convention will kick off Wednesday, September 27th with a keynote address from Terry Milewski, veteran CBC television personality and one of Canada's best-known broadcast journalists. With over forty years experience in journalism from around the world and within Canada, Terry has a rich and nuanced understanding of global and national politics.

Mr. Milewski has reported the news from 52 countries over the past 44 years—and was the CBC’s very first Middle East correspondent. Today, he speaks on how a free and functional media is crucial to a democratic society, and how Canada can lead the charge for a world that’s still committed to the truth.

Milewski began his career with the CBC as a local reporter in Calgary. He then jumped to the national news division as a science reporter before becoming a parliamentary correspondent. Since then, his thousands of assignments—including eight years as Washington correspondent for the CBC—have taken him all over Europe, Asia, the Americas, and the Middle East. Milewski is now retired from regular broadcasting as the CBC’s senior correspondent in Ottawa, but still appears frequently on air and online.
