Canadian Awards Honor Investigations

Canada's National Newspaper Awards have honored an impressive set of investigative reports, including probes into how police deal with sexual assault complaints, a man's claims of innocence after 30 years in prison, and Canada's role in the Panama Papers offshore scandal. Top honors went to "Unfounded," which exposed how police frequently abandon sexual assault cases, even when there is strong evidence. The 20-month project led police to re-open hundreds of cases. Also honored: a four-part series on the impact of concussions on retired Canadian football players.
