In 2002, while reporting for CBC TV in Argentina, Havard Gould found a frustrated group of homeowners, shaking their house keys in protest outside a bank in Buenos Aires. Unable to access their money, they feared losing their homes. It was a compelling scene that illustrated the devastating impact of the country’s financial crisis. For their work in Argentina, Havard and the team won the Gold World Medal at the New York Festival.
That is just one highlight of a long broadcasting career that has included political coverage, feature work and special reports from all over the world. Havard currently brings his storytelling instincts to the business beat on CBC’s The National and World at Six, among other network radio and television platforms.
Originally from Montreal, he has lived and worked in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa and Toronto, where he now resides. He has travelled extensively, particularly in China, but is probably happiest paddling on a quiet lake just after sunrise.
Havard studied journalism at Carleton University in Ottawa, graduating in 1980 with a Bachelor’s Degree (First Class Honours) and is currently a graduate student at the University of King’s College, Halifax. He is hard at work on his first book.
