"BUE" 2007 Obituary

Dennis BUECKERT: 57
Reporter Pioneered Climate-Change Coverage
Canadian Press, Page S12
Ottawa -- Dennis BUECKERT, long-time environment and science reporter for Canadian Press whose work put such issues as stem-cell research and climate change on the news agenda, died suddenly this week. He was 57.
"Dennis was one of the few journalists in this country who was dedicated full-time to the environment beat on a national basis," said Scott White, editor-in-chief of Canadian Press. "He wrote about topics like climate change long before most people had heard of the issue."
Born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan., Mr. BUECKERT studied journalism at Carleton University in Ottawa. He reported for the Saint John Telegraph-Journal and Times-Globe in the mid-1970s, then moved to the Gleaner in Fredericton as an editorial writer.
He quit to study French at Universite de Neuchatel in Switzerland. On his return to Canada in 1983 he joined Canadian Press in Montreal as a business and economics writer. But environment and science reporting was his passion, and as early as 1986 he was reporting, from Ukraine, on the fallout after the nuclear power accident at Chernobyl.
In 1988 he transferred to The Canadian Press bureau in Ottawa and soon focused on environment and health-policy issues. He covered such major international environmental conferences as the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1993 and the population conference in Cairo in 1994. Mr. BUECKERT's early work on the subject of stem-cell research helped put the issue in the news and on the public agenda.
In 1998 he was a finalist for the Michener Award for meritorious public service in journalism for his persistent digging on the plight of hepatitis-C patients who contracted the disease through tainted blood.
He is survived by his wife, Joan, and two sons. He was predeceased by a daughter.
