The Globe and Mail has endorsed the Conservative Party of Canada for the fourth consecutive federal election.

While the newspaper endorsed the party, it did not endorse its leader, Stephen Harper. The Globe headline reads: "The Tories Deserve Another Mandate – Stephen Harper Doesn't."

The notable caveat to the paper's endorsement spurred two hashtags, which were used to ridicule the paper's decision.

Both #MoreGlobeEndorsements and #OtherGlobeEndorsements quickly took off on Twitter.

The hashtag #OtherGlobeEndorsements was started by former Globe columnist Stephen Marche. 

Editor in chief David Walmsley took to Facebook shortly after the endorsement to help readers better understand the position of the newspaper.

Many people used #OtherGlobeEndorsements

While others opted to use #MoreGlobeEndorsements

And some opted to use no hashtag at all


  • An earlier version of this story stated Stephen Marche started the hashtag #MoreGlobeEndorsements. In fact, Marche started #OtherGlobeEndorsements.
