Graham Hicks is a freelance Edmonton Sun journalist, an entrepreneur, family man and commentator. His journalism career with the Edmonton Sun, from 1981 to 2010, was spent thinking, talking and dreaming about the city in which he has lived and worked for 34 years, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He currently has his own communications and commentary company, Hicks Biz.
Graham has received the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal for community service, Sun Media’s J.D. Creighton Award for lifetime achievement, the Grant MacEwan College’s Distinguished Citizen Award and The Rotary Club of Edmonton 2008 Integrity Award. On the eve of his retirement from the Edmonton Sun, the City of Edmonton declared November 8, 2010 to be “Graham Hicks Day” in Alberta’s capital city.
His absolute favorite pastime? Chronicling the evolution of the city/society in which he lives, hopes to live for the rest of his life, and which he hopes will provide opportunity for his children to lead fulfilled lives, should they chose to stay.
