‘No, I am not happy’: ‘No one is ever happy’

  • September 2, 2021

The Globe and Mail’s special edition, the best-seller list of the year, comes down to one word: “No.”

In a series of tweets, editor John Ivison and senior editor Benoit Pinchot described their own work as “committed to making the world a better place” as the publication faces unprecedented challenges, from climate change to rising costs.

“We are faced with a moment of reckoning, in which we must choose our role as guardians of our world and its future,” Ivison wrote.

“As editors, we have the opportunity to shape our work as well as others and to do so in a way that respects the work of others and does not undermine their work.”

Pinchot echoed the sentiment.

“If we are to be seen as stewards of the world, we must make sure that our work is as accessible and effective as possible,” he wrote.

The Globe and the Mail is now accepting applications for the job, with the final list of candidates due out in the fall.

The job is not a permanent position.

It can be filled by a freelancer, freelance writer or an outside contributor.
