- The Toronto Star, reporting on a leak of toxic benzene from a chemical plant in Sarnia, Ontario in February, 2014, writes that the government report on the incident was obtained by a group of investigators working on a journalism project that involved Concordia students. It notes the names of the students in Concordia's Department of Journalism who worked on the investigative reporting project, 'The Price of Oil', focused on fracking and other operations at oil wells in Saskatchewan. The project produced a series of eight news and opinion pieces, found in the National Observer.
