Typically, the New York Times isn’t strong on presenting Canadian news to its readers - unlike the Canadian counterpart, The Globe and Mail, which features a daily diet of American news - politics and entertainment. In the last year the New York Times’s Canadian-focused articles included topics such as antismoking legislation in Nunavut, potential terrorist ties to Canada, acrimonious debates over border safety, the travails of ageing boomers and seniors crossing the border to avail themselves of cheaper Canadian pharmaceuticals, legalized gay marriages, hockey, sordid politics (a patronage scandal in the Liberal party), softwood lumber disputes under NAFTA, the decriminalization of marijuana, and the synergy between Prime Minister Martin and rock star Bono.
