Listen to The CJN Daily Dead Beat, Part Deux

Clockwise from top left: Yehudi Lindeman, Louise Glatt, Shirley Granovsky and Joseph Segal.

Joseph Segal, a billionaire businessman and real estate magnate; Louise Glatt, an Ottawa-based musician and entrepreneur; Shirley Granovsky, a philanthropist in Toronto; broadcast veteran Arthur Weinthal; and Yehudi Lindeman, a Holocaust survivor who became a documentarian of his fellow survivors’ stories in Montreal.

These are some of the most notable Canadian Jews to pass away in the last few months. And to explain their impact, we’re joined by The CJN’s reporter emeritus, Ron Csillag, who joins for the second edition of The CJN Daily Dead Beat, a roundup of honourable mentions to some honourable mentschen and women whom our community recently lost.

Plus, Ron explains why the name “Dead Beat” isn’t meant to be offensive—just a bit of journalistic jargon dating back decades in the industry.
