Journalist Jacquie McNish accepts the 2000 Michener Honourable Mention Award from Governor General Adrienne Clarkson on behalf of the Globe and Mail. The newspaper received the award for its investigation of unethical practices in the securities business.
The award was presented during a ceremony held at Rideau Hall, Ottawa, May 24, 2001.
The first Michener award covered the calendar year 1970. Since then, a rich variety of news organizations have had their names inscribed on Michener trophies — print and broadcast, large and small, French and English, East and West. The Michener was also the first national journalism award open to both broadcast and print media. The award goes to the news organization itself, rather than the individual journalists involved in the story.
