History change

The Globe was founded in 1844 by Scottish immigrant George Brown. He was a Father of Confederation.

By the 1850s, The Globe had become a well-known daily newspaper.

The Globe and Mail formed when The Globe merged with another newspaper called The Mail and Empire in 1936.[7]

Since the 1980s, the newspaper has been printed in six Canadian cities: Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver.

At the end of 2010, the Thomson family, bought The Globe and Mail with an 85-percent stake.[8][9]

In October 2012, The Globe and Mail launched online.[10]
