Andrew Coyne is a national columnist for Postmedia/National Post and has been a regular contributor to The National's At Issue panel since 2005.
Raised in Winnipeg, he went on to study at the London School of Economics and is a Fellow of the School of Public Policy and Governance at the University of Toronto.
Over the past two decades he has been an editorial writer and columnist for The National Post and The Globe and Mail. He has also contributed to a number of other publications including The New York Times, National Review, Time and The Wall Street Journal.
Andrew has won two National Newspaper Awards and the Hyman Solomon Award for Excellence in Public Policy Journalism.
Though he claims he to have a distaste for politics (calling it a "sleazy, awful business, full of desperate unpleasant people"), Andrew considers himself an optimist and believes that there is a better politics out there - and that it is the role of the media to help bring it out.
