Political animal by nature and journalist by disposition, Anthony Côte followed the historical stream running from France to Québec in 2008, starting a B.Sc in Political Science at University of Montreal, which he completed with honours in 2011.
Back from a year-long globe-trotting ending in Haïti, he got involved in May 2012 in the community television CUTV. He reported often live from the heart of the Maple Spring action, as an on the ground journalist and studio host. There he developed a multimedia capability and a taste for long-form, investigative piece, digging deeper and behind the scenes to understand their undercurrents beyond the veil of immediacy proper to live coverage, whilst exploring the ever-fascinating world of data-journalism.
He's also always deeply interested about public and private power dynamics (both in Quebec and worldwide), epistemology, politics and its twilights, social movements, education, and american and european contemporary litterature. He's also relentlessly pursuing the ideal of a modern-day New Journalism, inspired by such journalistic legends like Tom Wolfe, Truman Capote and Hunter S. Thompson.
