Tom Cardoso is a member of The Globe and Mail's investigations team. Based in Toronto, he has been with The Globe since 2014, and was previously a reporter on the crime and justice beat covering gun policy, the cost of policing and Canada's correctional system. While at The Globe, his work has often focused on obtaining large government datasets through creative use of freedom of information legislation. Tom has reported extensively on systemic racism in prisons, gun violence and white collar crime, the latter of which netted him a Michener Award nomination and the international Data Journalism Awards' investigation of the year prize in 2018.
