Margaret Wente taking buyout

Margaret Wente has accepted a voluntary buyout and will be leaving the Globe and Mail at the end of August, she confirmed on Monday.
“I’ve had a wonderful run at the Globe–33 years at the paper, and almost 20 years writing my column. I’ve been blessed with great colleagues and fantastic readers,” she told J-Source in an email.
The buyout, or voluntary severance package, was first offered to staff in early May, with publisher Phillip Crawley saying the paper intended to cut $10 million a year from its labour budget.
Wente’s long tenure at the Globe has been…controversial. (J-Source)
