Brian Milner, a former business journalist for The (Toronto) Globe and Mail, died Nov. 26 at the age of 74 due to complications from gastrointestinal surgery.

Tim Kiladze of the Globe and Mail writes, “Milner made a name for himself writing for Report on Business, covering autos and the banks, and he also wrote (and ghostwrote) books, including The Hidden Establishment, a best-seller that profiled Canada’s secretive, wealthy immigrants. After a brief stint as associate managing editor, he, Sylvie and their daughter, Katrina, moved to New York in the mid-90s, when he landed a plum gig as The Globe’s New York correspondent. At the time, the internet barely existed, so it was on him to translate Wall Street and global economics.

“They moved back to Toronto in 2000 and Mr. Milner soon joined The Globe’s editorial board. He later returned to ROB, writing columns and features on economics and business. When he retired, he joked that he wore out 10 ROB editors, four editorial board editors and half a dozen editors-in-chief. He was also a regular guest on TV news programs, such as Headline, on Business News Network, and The Agenda, on TVO.”
