Breaking the Silence

Suicide is a topic that journalists rarely tackle because so many people are reluctant to talk openly about it. But in the gutsy series "Ending it All," Randy Richmond of The London Free Press exposes an epidemic that kills the equivalent of a jumbo jet crash every month in Canada. The series looks at why Canada has such a high suicide rate and what can be done about it. It includes a profile of two women struggling to survive their sister's suicide and a gripping narrative of two police officers trying to stop a man from jumping off a bridge.
My thanks to Brian Summers for sharing this series with me.
