Temur Durrani is a national business writer at BNN Bloomberg. A globe-trotting newshound originally from British Columbia, he has covered protests in Hong Kong, graffiti art in India and Pakistan, crashes in Alaska, crime in the GTA, politics in Ottawa, enterprise in the Maritimes, city hall in three cities, and even the Raptors’ historic run to the NBA final. Most recently, he covered the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic for the Winnipeg Free Press and was a reporter for the Toronto Star before that. He speaks fluently or conversationally in at least six languages (guess which ones!) and believes every important story is about power — its impact, inequity and diversity.
