A lot of people say the Globe and Mail is a Liberal paper, and would swear by it. But then why would they publish such a negative article on Scott Brison?

Also just take a look at their company they choose to supply them exclusively with poll results. The Strategic Council, which is the Conservative's own private polling company.

I would say that Globe and Marx is a lefty paper, which usually means Liberal, but not always. But Scott Brison is one of the more right-leaning Liberals (indeed, he ran for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative party a few years ago).

Personally I think it's a matter of opinion if the paper is left-leaning, Liberal, or neither. From my experience with it, it seems tremendously obvious to me that it is left-leaning (and so is its readership), but that doesn't make it a fact.

I have a post somewhere here that shows a long history of their opinion polls, and how that (at least) demonstrates their bias.
