In a bold move ten years ago, Jim and Anne Marie Creskey launched a newspaper to focus on foreign policy.
Embassy, Canada's Foreign Policy newsweekly, is now a must-read for diplomats and politicos in the capital.
The father-and-daughter team will celebrate Embassy newspaper's 10th Anniversary with readers, politicians and diplomats at a bash Thursday night at the Great Canadian Theatre Company.
The paper covers everything from serious policy to the menu at the British High Commission, to where diplomats shop for groceries.
Publisher Anne Marie Creskey says Embassy fills a niche in foreign news coverage.
"What we're doing is writing about Canada and its role in the world. We tell personal stories, stories dealing with refugees and also the hard foreign policy stories', said Creskey.
Creskey is also the publisher of the Hill Times Newspaper which covers federal politics, Parliament Hill, and the federal government.
