StaffReporterSenior political reporterOttawa

Marieke Walsh is a senior political reporter in The Globe and Mail’s Ottawa Bureau. Since joining The Globe in 2019, she has covered two federal elections, a global pandemic and the resulting race to land PPE and vaccines, and spent several months in Europe reporting on everything from the fallout of Russia’s war in Ukraine to the Queen’s funeral.

Marieke’s favourite place to be on Parliament Hill is shouting questions from the middle of a scrum. Her passion is for breaking stories that hold governments and people in power to account. In 2020, she was part of a team of Globe reporters that won a National Newspaper Award for their coverage of the WE Charity controversy.

She regularly provides political analysis on radio and television for both CBC and CTV.

Before joining The Globe, Marieke covered the Ontario legislature for iPolitics, and the Nova Scotia legislature for Global News. She started her journalism career on Parliament Hill producing political TV shows.
