Toronto globe mail or, more correctly, the Globe and Mail, page provides background and links to 'Canada's national newspaper'. It also provides links to our pages on Toronto's other major daily papers.
Why pages on local newspapers for visitors to Ontario?
A number of reasons; for example, if you stay in an upmarket hotel you're generally provided a free morning paper and our newspaper pages will help you choose the one that best suits your tastes, if you get a choice.
Alternatively, if you're staying in Ontario for some time you'll want to know what's going on in the world or maybe just what's going on back home. Picking the right paper will help you there too.
The Globe and Mail is the most outward-looking and probably least political, of the three (four, if you count the National Post) Toronto papers -- in my opinion.
Of course, it could just be that my biases and its biases agree so I don't notice the underlying slant. The Globe certainly carries more international and national news and is written in a measured, un-sensational style.
If you want to know what's happening in the world while holidaying in Ontario, this is probably the paper you should pick.
On the downside, it's a large size paper with many large and heavy sections, most of which won't be interesting (e.g. Real Estate, Lifestyle, Travel, Personal Ads, etc) to a visitor. All of which makes it hard to manage when you're on the move so it can be a pain to carry around, particularly on public transport.
As well, there's a lot of writing in the Globe and that takes a lot of reading, which isn't necessarily something you want to spend your time doing when you're on vacation.
Here's the Globe and Mail website where you can check it out. And, of course, it's where you can keep track of events without actually buying the paper.
And for a hotel in Ontario or anywhere else:
