In my opinion, the Globe and mail is good if you are looking for news on the economy or other business news. The National Post has better coverage for all corners of the country and tends to do a better job of news other than business and economy. I also prefer the National Post for its political stories since they tend to post things a little more raw than the Globe. For me it's like the Globe sanitizes it first and it loses something. Unlike our neighbors to the South I don't think we have one outstanding national paper, you almost need to read both to get the whole story.
