Project: The Globe and Mail's U.S. Election 2012
My name is Affan Chowdhry and I work
as a multimedia foreign news reporter at the Globe and Mail in Toronto, Canada.
Our newspaper - in print and online - is gearing up for a busy period leading up
to the U.S. presidential election. On July 4th this year, we launched an
exciting new project and we are looking to spread the word.
The Globe and Mail's U.S. Election
2012: Canadians in America series puts our audience front and centre in our
ongoing coverage of this pivotal election year.
We believe our readers in the U.S.
- often Canadians who have made their home there, pursuing careers,
relationships, raising families - provide an interesting lens through which to
view key themes and issues. We look to them to reflect on life and politics in
the U.S. and to help explain what is at stake.
We'd love to invite members of the
Canadian Expat Network to explore our interactive and read the profiles, watch
the videos and share on Facebook and Twitter the stories of the 12 Canadian
expats that we have featured: tgam.ca/globe-expats.
Online readers can also send
questions for this group of expats. And we would love to get some feedback from
your members about our project and election year stories they think we should be
covering. They can write our community editor for news, Chris Hannay: firstname.lastname@example.org or Affan Chowdhry: email@example.com
