Alex Huntley is an editor and senior writer with the satirical Canadian ‘fake news’ site and tie-in television show, The Beaverton. Born and raised in Niagara, he earned a BA with Honours in politics and history and a Master’s in Public Administration from Queen’s University, and has an expired basic first aid certificate from the distinguished school of St. John’s Ambulance. Since joining The Beaverton in 2012, this government policy analyst turned comedy writer has expanded the publication’s presence in Canada by living in Montreal, Whitehorse, and exotic Winnipeg, and by recruiting local writers. Having a love affair with Canadian history since childhood, he created The Beaverton’s Moments in Canadian History.

Alex is the co-author of The Beaverton Presents Glorious and/or Free: The True History of Canada, a scrapbook style compendium of satirical articles and headlines that shine a distinctly Canuck light on our country’s national past-times, myths, and legends.

He lives with his wife in Kingston.
