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.
Wow. I think I actually just started a hashtag.#OtherGlobeEndorsements— @StephenMarche
Editor in chief David Walmsley took to Facebook shortly after the endorsement to help readers better understand the position of the newspaper.
