In recent years, Thomas Daigle has covered some of the biggest stories in Quebec. He reported nightly on student protests in the streets of Montreal, covered bombshell testimony at the Charbonneau Corruption Inquiry and was among the first journalists on the scene the day of the Lac-Mégantic train disaster.
As a political reporter in Quebec City in 2014, Daigle covered the ups and downs of the Parti Québécois. He was there as the PQ government attempted to ban religious symbols in the public service, only to be ousted in a general election months later.
Having grown up in bilingual settings in northeastern and southern New Brunswick, Daigle is fluent in both English and French. After graduating from Concordia University, he served as a videojournalist for the CBC's French-language service, Radio-Canada, in Saint John.
Daigle has reported live on CNN and BBC World News. He regularly files reports for CBC newscasts including The National, CBC News Montreal, CBC Radio programs and appears on CBC News Network.
