Timeline of Paula Simons
Paula Simons was appointed to the Senate of Canada (upper chamber) on October 3, 2018 by her Excellency the Rt. Hon. Julie Payette, Gov-Gen. of Canada on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen of Canada, Elizabeth II, on the recommendation of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Simons disclosed in the final days of the run-up to the 2015 Alberta Provincial Election that the editorial board of the Edmonton Journal had been under pressure from the paper’s parent company Post Media, and namely its CEO Paul Godfrey, to endorse the incumbent Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta and its leader Jim Prentice. While their Alberta coverage was deemed to have “reported quite fairly during the election”, Post Media was strongly criticized by Simons and many of her fellow journalists (and some of the public) for presenting the Journal as a neutral, local source without partisan bias when in fact they were facing pressure to advocate for one specific candidate. Traditionally, newspapers are expected to disclose their bias through an endorsement, as The Journal did in the 2019 Alberta election when they endorsed the UCP candidate Jason Kenney.
In a column Simons wrote about the Senate published August 13, 2013, she discussed how and why Senators get appointed, their entitlement, and some of her current colleagues “allegedly bending the rules” in the Senate. “These days, the Senate is failing on almost every front. Instead of being appointed on merit, all too often senators get the gig because they’re political cronies or party loyalists, bagmen (and women) who have primarily distinguished themselves as rabid partisans or backroom boys, not deep thinkers.” Referring to her reinstated colleagues she said, “Small wonder many Canadians are wondering why we bother at all with an unelected upper house, full of entitled toffs who can’t be turfed even if they break the law, even if they’re not medically competent to hold office,” she wrote. “Yes, there are earnest, hardworking, intelligent, thoughtful senators serving on committees, scrutinizing legislation, meeting with school kids, speaking to service clubs. But they’ve been so overshadowed in the public mind by the antics of the reprobates that it’s hard for any senator to maintain public credibility.”
Joining in 1995, Simons is best known for her work as a journalist with the Edmonton Journal newspaper, where her work as a political columnist and investigative journalist earned her a faithful following. She became a columnist on city affairs in 2001.
Simons was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, one of two children born to Norman Wolfe and Oli (née Dyck) Simons. Her father, a lawyer, was of Jewish descent; her paternal grandparents had immigrated from Russia and settled in Round Hill, Alberta where he was raised. She earned a B.A. Honours degree in English Literature and minor in French and Comparative Literature from the University of Alberta in 1986, and a master’s degree in Journalism from Stanford University, before spending time as a fellow at the Poynter Institute for Media Studies. She returned to Canada in the winter of 1988 and worked as a freelance copy editor, then as a producer for CBC Radio in Toronto and Edmonton from 1989 to 1995.
Paula Simons (born September 7, 1964) is a Canadian Senator. She previously worked as a journalist and was a columnist for the Edmonton Journal in Edmonton, Alberta. She sits as an independent senator representing Alberta in the Senate of Canada, and is part of the Independent Senators Group caucus.
