    (xxx)Crashed Porsche saga: does transparency defeat conflict?(xxx)
    Next time The Globe and Mail reviews a Porsche in its auto pages, or
    investigates a news story involving the company, will its approach be
    influenced by a gift of $10,000 from the car company to the paper? The
    question is a neat opportunity to explore the difference between apparent
    and actual conflict of interest, and the role of disclosure in resolving
    it, Ivor Shapiro writes.

    (xxx)What the Canwest sale means for journalists(xxx)
    Kelly Toughill examines the sale of Canwest's newspaper division, the new
    owner's track record and his strategy for the future, and what it all
    means for journalists.

    (xxx)Scrum and gone(xxx)
    The incredible shrinking Queen's Park press gallery is a stark example of
    what happens when resources run dry. What's going: informed citizens and
    democratic accountability. What's coming: a potential breeding ground for
    political corruption. This week, we feature Jonathan Ore's story for the
    spring issue of the Ryerson Review of Journalism.
