Alumni Western Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

Paul Wells, BA'89

Journalist and author

Paul Wells (BA’89) graduated from Western with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science.

The Sarnia, Ont., native parlayed his academic background as well as news editor position at The Gazette, Western’s undergraduate student newspaper, into a post-grad internship at the Montreal Gazette. In 1994, he became the publication’s political columnist, working in Ottawa.

His work for The Gazette – and occasional pieces in Saturday Night magazine – draw the attention of the new National Post, which hired him away as a political columnist in 1998.

He moved to Maclean’s magazine in 2003. At the national magazine he pens a weekly political column, as well as blog, Inkless Wells.

Wells’ first book, Right Side Up: The Fall of Paul Martin and the Rise of Stephen Harper's New Conservatism, debuted in October 2006 and appeared on multiple Canadian best-seller lists. He released his e-book, The Harper Decade, following Stephen Harper’s rise to power, in 2012.
