OK All You Canadians...

Do you buy what this article is selling?

We get the Globe and Mail. We just began getting it. It's funny, because when I was a young working women, the Globe was the newspaper that the "suits" read. Those of us who worked for the suits read the Toronto Star because they had more human interest stories, and better comics!

I like the National Post a lot. The Globe still kind of comes across as a stodgy, boardroom type newspaper to me. The resident news junkie in our home, the Bugman, gets most of his news on the internet now.

Toronto has four daily newspapers. The Star is a mouthpiece for the Liberal Party. The Sun is a libertarian tabloid. The National Post used to be ultra-conservative, but now it's owned by a family that backs the Liberals, so it doesn't know what it wants to be. The Globe and Mail is still stodgy and conservative and reliable, despite the fact that they bought some colour ink for their press.

And the article they use as an example is correct: Canada is rushing to do business with China. Most of our exports go the the U.S., and one ill step can devastate whole sectors of our economy (think mad cow), so the Chinese thing is an attempt to insulate us from the economic and political ups and downs of America.

I don't read the news. Isn't that awful? I don't watch TV - I am like a hermit except for the internet.

I wouldn't be surprized if the G&M starts having "globe girls" in the Friday edition.
