A graduate of Langara College's journalism program, he started his career with the Victoria Times Colonist before moving to the Vancouver Sun, where he worked for nineteen years.[1][2] Mason was hired by the Globe as part of an effort to expand the publication to British Columbia readers in 2005; his familiarity to local readers was a factor in his hiring.[3]
