Grant LaFleche, All the Chair’s Men

Grant LaFleche is an award-winning investigative journalist with the St. Catharines Standard in Niagara, Ontario.

His investigation into Niagara’s regional government, in a series of stories called All The Chair’s Men, played a major role in triggering an Ontario Ombudsman’s investigation into the Niagara Region and impacted the 2018 municipal election. That series won the Ontario Newspaper Awards investigative journalism award, and Grant was named journalist of the year.  All the Chair’s Men also won the National Newspaper Awards George Brown Award for investigative journalism and the community media award from Canadian Association of Journalists.
