Frances Bula resigns from the Vancouver Sun

The Vancouver Sun's veteran municipal-affairs reporter, Frances Bula, has quit her job at the CanWest MediaWorks  metropolitan daily paper.

In a posting on her blog today on the Vancouver Sun site, Bula announced that she is leaving, but provided no explanation for her decision.

"As for me, I will continue with other forms of journalism, including blogging, but, unless there is an unforeseeable turn in my life in the next few years, I won't be embedded in a daily-news operation any more as I have been for the past 25 years of my life," Bula wrote.

Bula has been on the municipal beat since 1994, covering several elections, the rise of the harm-reduction movement and the  four-pillars approach to drug addiction  in Vancouver, the  departure of mayors Philip Owen and Larry Campbell  from municipal politics,  and the recent hotly contested mayoral-nomination races  for Vision Vancouver and the NPA.

She studied housing issues for a year after being chosen for a prestigious Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy in 1998.
