Connor McDowell

I began my journey at the Record in May 2023. My educational background includes studying journalism at the University of King's College in Halifax. I also hold a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Victoria.

I enjoy combining economics with journalism, focusing on the intricate connections between people, behaviours, societal impacts and policy decisions.
