The Globe and Mail was awarded a 2007 Michener Citation of Merit for an in-depth examination of the impact of cancer on the lives of Canadians. The photo taken following a ceremony at Rideau Hall on June 8, 2007.
The first 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.
