Original cannabis journalism for Canadians

About The Leaf

Canada is about to undergo a seismic shift that will not only impact the country’s  laws, but also its culture and economy. There will be questions. There will be concerns. And there will be business opportunities. 

The Winnipeg Free Press has been a trusted source of information about Manitoba, Canada and the world for more than 140 years.

Building on that proud journalistic tradition, the Free Press has become the first major Canadian daily newspaper to create a full-time cannabis beat and to launch a trusted destination for those looking for original journalism about the legalization of marijuana. 

Under the banner of The Leaf, the Free Press documents everything and anything about the shift from Reefer Madness to legal lifestyle option using the same solid fundamentals of journalism we have practised for more than a century.
