Freshdaily Lays Off Entire Editorial Staff Two Weeks After Launching

Staff writer Sarah Hagi and senior editor Jaren Kerr (the latter until recently a deputy editor with Canadaland) were just over a month into their jobs when publisher Tim Shore informed them of his decision. A third staffer, former Canadaland contributor Sean Craig, departed last week due to an unrelated personal matter.
