Her Excellency Adrienne Clarkson presents the 2004 Michener Award to Globe and Mail editor-in-chief Edward Greenspon.
The Globe and Mail was honoured for its relentless investigation of the federal sponsorship program which led to one of the biggest political scandals in Canadian history.
The Michener Award ceremony was held at Rideau Hall, home of the Governor General, in Ottawa, on April 14, 2005.
The annual award is open to daily and weekly newspapers, news agencies, radio and television stations and networks as well as periodicals. The winners are chosen on the basis of hard-hitting impact, journalistic professionalism, and the resources available for the project.
