The Globe Pitches Left

Conspiracy alert. Unseen forces are at work at the Globe and Mail. Doug Saunders wants to take down the wealthy. Charles Foran wants to demolish "the walls protecting careful constructions of dominance." Margaret Wente now preaches about privilege. Trevor Herriot proselytizes about believing in pie ("If you take too large a piece for yourself, someone else is going to go hungry.") Not so long ago the Globe was Canada's answer to The Economist or the Wall Street Journal, an establishment paper only too happy to leave social-justice activism to other media. Today we are witnessing a great migration—of classical liberals onto the shrinking island that is the National Post.
