Globe and MailCanadian English language national newspaper based in Toronto.
In 1936, after a merger with the Mail and Empire (ironically, the Mail was the paper of Brown's arch-rival, Sir John A. MacDonald), the Globe became the Globe and Mail. In 1962, the paper added its popular Report on Business section.
Owned by the Kenneth Thomson family, in 2001 the paper was sold to BCE Inc, also owners of the CTV network. The network and paper are now run under the Bell Globemedia division, and several reporters from one of the outlets frequently appear on the other.
Editorially, the Globe and Mail has historically been a conservative paper, though in the past few years it has become increasingly liberal, especially when compared to its chief rival, the National Post. Due to the competition from the Post the paper has made other changes, such as the introduction of colour photographs and the creation of the "Review" section on Arts and Entertainment.
