Description:

“Under the new helm of new Editor-in-Chief, Edward Greenspon, appointed in May, 2002, The Globe and Mail continues to deliver Canada’s best, deepest coverage of major national and international events – occasions when Canadians gravitate to our newspaper for its comprehensive approach to significant events and issues.”

Mission:

“The Globe and Mail newspaper’s traditional motto was selected by George Brown in 1844, and can still be found at the top of the editorial page: “The subject who is truly loyal to the Chief Magistrate will neither advise nor submit to arbitrary measures.” The quotation is from Junius, the pseudonym of an English writer of the 18th century. We believe, as Brown did when he founded the newspaper, that only an informed public can defend itself against power seekers who threaten its freedoms. Our mandate remains unchanged. We will continue to represent the only definitive consumer choice of newspaper, magazines and websites that truly engages Canada in a conversation.”
