Delmar is a news nerd with a passion for communications and roughly one decade of experience in print, radio, television and online media. He has strong opinions and makes a point of not shying away from controversy, as long as it's constructive and doesn't disappoint his mother.
He is a contributor with The National Post (and its Full Comment blog), The Métropolitain (where he was the managing editor), and a talk-show host and commentator with CJAD 800, and occasionally on Toronto's Newstalk 1010. He is also the co-founder of public relations firm Provocateur Communications.
After studying cinema, communications, marketing and journalism, he began his professional life as a news reporter with The Suburban and has also worked as a television host on Montreal's former CH channel.
He enjoys Polish vodka, pretentious cuisine and boasts about having dated two opera singers. Both sopranos, by the way.
Supriya is fluently trilingual in English, French and Hindi, so that means she can give you her (unsolicited) opinion in all three languages. Being the good Indian girl that she is, Supriya graduated with a Bachelor of Science from McGill University, and upon completion she was accepted into both medical and law school.
Much to the chagrin of her parents, Supriya opted to pursue the legal route where she could finally use her argumentative powers for good. She completed her LL.B in civil law at the University of Montreal, and is currently a J.D. candidate for May of 2013.
She is a regular contributor to CJAD 800 where her ability to analyze politics, lament on pop culture and make grown men cry, shine through.
Supriya also works as a Research Assistant and Policy Analyst for the Centre of Genomics and Policy, where her work involves liability issues involved in direct-to-consumer genetic profiling, e-consent, the commercialization of stem cells, and the consequent challenges to the Canadian regulatory framework. But her parents still tell their friends she’s in her 4th year of medical school.
She blogs on politics, religion, legal issues and women's rights, and lives in Montreal with her dog, Cody.
