Jeff Gray covers Queen’s Park for The Globe and Mail. He began his career in 1998 as a summer staffer working with the sports department before serving as a copyeditor for the arts and news departments.
In 2000, he became the paper's first online reporter-editor, part of the small team that launched globeandmail.com, The Globe's breaking-news website.
He spent a year in London in 2002, working on the world desk at BBC Online News and reporting for The Globe.
Jeff was posted to Toronto city hall in 2004, while writing a column about traffic and public transit as the city went through a period of renewed debate on light-rail lines, bike lanes, and other alternatives to the car.
He moved to the Report on Business team in 2010, focusing on fraud, shareholder class actions, insider trading, and other white-collar crime as the section's law reporter.
In 2016, he returned to cover Toronto city hall and municipal politics. In 2019, he took on a new role as a reporter at the Ontario Legislature, just after Doug Ford - himself a former Toronto municipal politician - became Premier.
Jeff lives in Toronto.
