Reporter Susanne Craig accepts 1999 Michener Honourable Mention award from Governor General Adrienne Clarkson on behalf of the Globe and Mail.
The newspaper was honoured for a five-part series on insider stock trading based on an investigation into more than 100 mergers and acquisitions. The series helped to change public policy towards illegal insider trading.
The award was presented during a ceremony held at Rideau Hall, Ottawa, April 10, 2000.
Each year, the Governor General has honoured Michener Award and Fellowship winners at a Government House ceremony. Each of Roland Michener’s successors has graciously adopted and maintained a personal interest in the Michener Awards Foundation and its commitment to Canadian journalism excellence.
