Darron Kloster

Darron Kloster has been an editor, reporter and feature writer for the Times Colonist for 34 years and has worked in the industry for four decades covering everything from sports and business to municipal and provincial politics and breaking news.

Darron covers stories involving climate change and issues involving wildlife, marine ecosystems and the rapid changes to our natural world. He also edits and compiles several of the Times Colonist’s special projects, including Discover Magazine, and writes the On The Street business column.

A Saskatchewan native and a graduate of Mount Royal University journalism program, Darron has a natural curiosity — and a belief that every person has a story to tell.

When he’s not at press conferences, in the field, on the phone or pounding on a keyboard, Darron likes exploring and photographing Vancouver Island’s beautiful terrain, tending his vegetable patch and doing carpentry projects.
