For 12 years, Jock Climie, Arts’89, Law’94, deftly managed two careers. With the Canadian Football League, he played the slotback positions primarily with the Toronto Argonauts, Ottawa Rough Riders, and Montreal Alouettes.
As a lawyer, he joined the Ottawa firm of Emond Harnden. He is now a partner with the firm. In 2002, TSN approached him to be a commentator on the sports panel during the CFL season. He has been entertaining and informing a Canadian football-hungry audience ever since. As a 12-year CFL veteran, Mr. Climie brings an abundance of knowledge and insight, offering analysis and commentary from a former player’s perspective.

When Elamin Abdelmahmoud, Artsci’11, began studying at Queen’s, he had a vague idea about what his future career might be. As he progressed through his degree in Gender Studies, and immersed himself into student activities such as writing for the Queen’s Journal, it became clear that journalism would be his chosen career path.
Just a few years after graduating, Mr. Abdelmahmoud was in his “dream job” as online producer for The Agenda with Steve Paikin, TV Ontario’s flagship current affairs program. Today, as Social Media Specialist, he manages social media for all current affairs and documentaries with TVO.
