I submitted a question. What happens next?
Your question will be reviewed by Amberly McAteer, the Canada Q&A Editor. If it’s selected for a response, we’ll let you know when and where the answer will appear.
When will my question be answered?
Some questions won’t take us long, while others require some in-depth exploration by our journalists. Please be patient. When your question is answered, we’ll let you know.
Will every question be answered?
No. Just as we can’t print every letter to the editor that we receive, we can’t answer every question. However, we’ll do our best to answer as many as possible.
Will you let me know if you won’t be answering my question?
No. Unfortunately, we cannot get back to everyone so we’ll only be contacting those whose questions we’ve answered.
Who decides which questions will be answered?
All questions will be considered by Amberly McAteer Canada Q&A Editor.
What sorts of questions are you looking for?
We want to know what’s on the minds of Canadians during this crucial federal election campaign. Keep in mind, the questions that get answered are more likely to be of interest to a wider audience than just you personally.
How many questions can I ask?
As many as you’d like, but we can’t promise we’ll answer them all.
Will the answer to my question appear in the newspaper?
The Globe routinely uses many different platforms to tell stories. Your question may be answered in an article the Politics Live blog, or video on globeandmail.com, in a tweet or Facebook post, or in a print article. We’ll choose the platform based on how we feel we can best answer your question.
