Meet Mr. Ballantyne

Ottawa-based teacher-journalist, who explores pop culture, media literacy and student talent development issues

Reporter and researcher

As a former investigative journalist with the CBC, I worked on a number of prestigious TV programs. My reporting background gives me unique insights as an educator in language arts, media studies and film and video production.


For over 20 years, I’ve edited a pop culture website, and one-time print magazine, that was distributed nationally at bookstores and newsstands nationwide, including Chapters, Indigo and Coles Books.
