Globe and Mail, The

Daily newspaper published in Toronto, the most prestigious and influential journal in Canada.

It was formed in 1936 when George McCullagh bought and merged two competing papers, the liberal Globe (founded 1844) and the conservative Mail and Empire (founded 1872 as The Mail). The paper sees its role as "independent but not neutral." Its publication of the texts of speeches, parliamentary debates, and other documents has made it Canada's newspaper of record. It is especially strong in international news coverage.

▪ Canadian newspaper
      daily newspaper published in Toronto, the most prestigious and influential journal in Canada.

      The paper's origins can be traced to a liberal newspaper, The Globe, founded in 1844 by a Scottish immigrant, George Brown, and to The Mail, later the Mail and Empire, a conservative paper founded by John A. Macdonald in 1872. The two papers competed until 1936, when George McCullagh bought The Globe. Less than a month later, he bought the Mail and Empire and merged the two as the independent newspaper, The Globe and Mail.

      The Globe and Mail sees its role as “independent but not neutral.” It is Canada's national newspaper, in effect, and its publication of the texts of speeches, parliamentary debates, and other documents has made it the Canadian newspaper of record. Its large staff of foreign correspondents and its foreign news bureaus have given The Globe and Mail's international coverage great strength. For more than a decade from 1958, its Beijing bureau was the source of China news preferred by most U.S. dailies. In 1999 The Globe and Mail launched the cable television channel ROBTv, which featured business news and opinion, and by the early 21st century the newspaper was publishing several magazines. In 2001 The Globe and Mail was bought by Bell Globemedia Publishing Inc.
