Meeting Jim Coyle

Jim Coyle

Jim Coyle, a Honorary OLIP Intern and great friend of interns past and present, was kind enough to meet with us during orientation. He shared with us some of his insights into the psychology of a few of the major players at Queen’s Park. He also gave us some perspective on how the relationship between the press gallery and the politicians has evolved over the years, which was fascinating, and shared some compelling personal anecdotes. Jim’s first outing as a journalist came when he was a student writing to the Chilean government for a project, and he discovered how much could be uncovered through a few simple questions. The candid conversation about politics combined with some great storytelling made this meeting one to remember.
