The Toronto Globe and Mail’s “Report on Business” section has completed a major renovation that includes changes to its stock listings as well as columnists, wrote editor John Stackhouse in Monday’s paper.

Report on BusinessStackhouse wrote, “Today, we introduce a weekly Agenda page as a forum for outside views on the most pressing business issues facing Canada. You’ll also see space, on our website and in print, for your views. A new management page features our Monday Morning Manager and our new Strategists panel. And on the Corner Office page, you can follow Gordon Pitts as he talks to top executives about their hopes and frustrations.

“Through the week, you’ll see many more changes. Derek DeCloet has taken up residence on page B2 as our columnist on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Fabrice Taylor, a trained investment analyst, is back in our Vox column. Our award-winning columnist Eric Reguly has moved to Europe to explain the vast business world that lies on the other side of the Atlantic. And Marcus Gee becomes our first Asia-Pacific reporter, examining the transformation spanning the ocean to our west.

“Tomorrow, in our new Globe Investor section, we launch a revolution in markets coverage, replacing our daily stock listings with new pages of financial charts, rankings, stock profiles and interpretive data. We’ll also introduce the new ROB 100, a list of stocks covering 84 per cent of the S&P/TSX composite index. On Saturday, our Globe Investor package expands to seven pages of data, charting, commentary by Scott Adams and Rob Carrick and analysis by Heather Scoffield.”
