No Post Mondays — beginning of the end?

The Canadian Press is reporting that “The National Post newspaper is going without its Monday print editions for nine weeks this summer in a move that will lower its newsprint costs.” Although the company will still run a digital edition, it won't publish a print edition during the summer, starting June 29 and continue for nine consecutive Mondays.

I am happy to see that the paper plans to continue publishing fresh news content on its digital edition and its regular Web site. I do wonder, though, if this is really the beginning of the end of this excellent newspaper. It will be a great pity if it is—there are precious few forums for right-of-centre views in Canada as it is.

  1. No NationalPost(Iam sure the online news will still be going) monday's over the summer?

    Pretty smart in my book.

  2. I am disappointed that the National Post is in such financial trouble. There are few alternatives for a conservative point of view. I have been a faithful reader of the Post since its inception. Hopefully the management and owners will be able to come up with a plan to continue this valuable voice of conservative thinking.
