Wolf Depner

I had previously reported for the Saanich News in Greater Victoria from October 2016 to September 2019. My time with Black Press Media also includes six years at the Penticton Western News (2002-2008) and summer internships in the region. Before rejoining Black Press Media on Vancouver Island, I had studied and taught at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus and I recently served as associate faculty at Royal Roads University.
