Alex Panetta is the editor of POLITICO Pro Canada. He spent two decades at Canada's national wire service, reporting on federal, provincial and international politics, as well as from crises in Afghanistan and Haiti.
In his five years in Washington for The Canadian Press, he covered major American stories and Canada-U.S. issues like NAFTA, the Keystone XL pipeline and a host of other regulatory and trade issues. A Montreal native, Alex got his start in daily journalism covering Major League Baseball's erstwhile Montreal Expos, and was pleased to join them in their new common home, in D.C.
Like most Montrealers, Alex speaks French, as well as Spanish and Italian. Unlike most, he's still struggling to master a hockey slapshot.
