I've noticed that more than a few around the hockey blogosphere refer to my employer as the Toronto Globe and Mail, a designation that doubly puzzles and troubles me (a la here). For a clarification, we head to Answers.com:
So, unless you're being a clever (and under-represented) Canadian, as I suspect Mr. Fitzpatrick is, let's refer to The Globe and Mail as such. It is, after all, a national newspaper, with bureaus throughout the country (and a Toronto section that is only a few pages each night). You don't hear about the Virginia USA Today too often, now do you?
Though promoted as a national paper and sold throughout Canada, The Globe and Mail also serves as a Toronto metropolitan paper, publishing several special sections in its Toronto edition which are not included in the national edition.
As such it is sometimes popularly ridiculed as being too focused on the GTA, which could be seen as part of a wider humourous notion of Torontonians sometimes being blind to the wider concerns of the nation. (A similar criticism is sometimes applied to The New York Times). For this reason, critics sometimes refer to the paper as the Toronto Globe and Mail or as Toronto's National Newspaper, but these are never correct designations for the paper.
