Globe and Mail Refused to Interview Thomas Mulcair for its 10,000-Word Profile of Thomas Mulcair
The Globe and Mail has published a huge feature on Thomas Mulcair, written by Jeffrey Simpson, and it's nothing like the tender, eight-page backrub Ian Brown gave Justin Trudeau in the same section one week ago. Trudeau got the benefit of an interview. Mulcair did not, despite offering to talk to the Globe, twice.

The Globe and Mail has published a huge feature on Thomas Mulcair, written by Jeffrey Simpson, and it’s nothing like the tender, eight-page backrub Ian Brown gave Justin Trudeau in the same section one week ago. Trudeau got the benefit of an interview. Mulcair did not, despite offering to talk to the Globe, twice.
