Sue-Ann Levy

Sue-Ann Levy built up a loyal readership of both fans and detractors over her 31 years on the political and investigative beats for the Toronto Sun and the Post Media chain of newspapers.

Openly gay and right-of-centre politically, Sue-Ann was one of the top read Toronto Sun columnists because of her outspoken opinions, take-no-prisoners writing style and the fearless way with which she tackled the elitists in government, other publicly funded institutions and in the media. She has made it her crusade to expose waste and mismanagement, to promote an unpopular cost-cutting agenda and to probe issues no other journalists have dared to tackle.

A two-time investigative reporting award winner and nine-time winner of the Toronto Sun’s Readers Choice award for news writer, Sue-Ann made her name for advocating the poor, the homeless, the elderly in long-term care and others without a voice and for fighting against the striking rise in anti-Semitism and the BDS movement across Canada.

In late August of 2016, Sue-Ann’s first book--Underdog: Confessions of a Right-Wing, Gay Jewish Muckraker--was released by Penguin Random House Canada to rave reviews and media coverage across Canada and in such international publications as the Times of Israel.

A seasoned marathon runner, Sue-Ann achieved her dream of running the Jerusalem half-marathon in March of 2018, one of the top five most difficult courses in the world. She now sticks to 5K and 10K races or biking around Toronto on her e-bike. She lives in midtown Toronto with her wife, Denise Alexander and their three politically incorrect long-haired dachshunds, Flora, Fritzy and Monty.
