POLICORNER is a newsletter on the politics, policies and personalities driving the week at Queen’s Park.

Read and trusted by a growing community of the province’s top political players — lawmakers and leaders to senior staffers, strategists, lobbyists and public servants, it’s an essential, deeply reported read, decoding the policies and politicking that underpin the political scene in the trillium province, with original, comprehensive coverage of the top stories.

We don’t take a side. We want you to better understand how all the big players think and why they act the way they do. We tell you about the strategy, power dynamics and the political climate within.

What’s in each issue?

The newsletter will hit subscribers’ inboxes every Friday around lunchtime. It’s loaded with top notch coverage of the week that was.

Expect a weekly dose of hot scoops, the top headlines in provincial politics and a primer to the agenda of the week ahead — in the chamber and at committee. You’ll meet the people in power — and those seeking their ear — through spicy Q+As and feature biogs. You’ll receive a roundup of new polling, fundraising, lobbying and regulatory changes or proposals.

It will include nerdy policy explainers, the précis of key legislation and reporting with impact. Data for the number wonks. Personnel moves in and around the bubble. And fresh basement gossip with insider insight and analysis into the palace milieu. Read up on our top scoops and stories here.

On our site, extra A+ content: a new podcast, op eds from those in the know and more.

Subscribers get each issue, full access to the archive, special dispatches and early access to our editorial events with some of Ontario politics’ most influential.
