Neil Corbett

I have been a journalist for more than 30 years, the past decade with the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows News. I moved to the city in 2012. I’ve worked at community newspapers in Abbotsford, Mission, Hope, and Williams Lake, as well as in Ontario – serving as an editor and reporter. Along the way, I have won various national journalism awards, and been part of successful news teams. In Maple Ridge, I am a multi-media reporter, and have covered a variety of beats including education, sports, city council, as well as political issues at the federal and provincial levels with local impacts.
