Karin Wells is an internationally respected radio documentary maker.  Her work on social justice issues has taken her around the world and involved her in some of the thorniest Canadian social dilemmas.  The Canadian Association of Journalists awarded her its Investigative Journalism award for her documentary, Fixing Jeffrey Buffalo, about a little boy in Timmins, Ontario who was the victim of zero tolerance.  The New York Festival has honoured pieces she has done on the amputees of Sierra Leone and life after the war for Bosnian rape victims. In 2008, Karin hosted a lively panel discussion with some well-known Canadian journalists.
