This book is a memorial to the career of journalist Margaret Philp. It is a collection of 130 articles that are representative of her work, with introductions to the articles by contributors who had co-authored with her; individuals who had been interviewed and quoted in her articles; experts on the subject areas that she wrote about; and others.

The contributors were asked to address three questions:
  • what contribution did Margaret's article or cluster of articles make to public information and public policy;
  • what are your recollections about Margaret; and
  • how have the issues changed today?
Margaret Philp's journalism career at The Globe & Mail spanned 20 years. She began working as a business reporter, covering issues such as restructuring of financially distressed businesses. But it was her deep interest in social policy where she found her strongest voice, speaking for disenfranchised groups such as the homeless, children who had been abused, and women living in poverty. She won National Newspaper Awards for her work on homelessness and won the coveted Atkinson Fellowship, exploring public policy issues surrounding adoption. Margaret died on September 9, 2009, at age 43, after a four year battle with breast cancer.
