Over 100 Canadian Newspapers Take Their Ball And Go Home

It’s unlikely we’ll go back to how things were, and newspapers need to finally accept that.

This week, over 100 newspapers, the bulk of them owned by large media companies Torstar and Postmedia, made their own news with a campaign that featured intentionally blank pages to raise awareness about Canada’s disappearing newspapers. Or that is what they are saying, anyway. 

Global News positioned the stunt as a glimpse into our newsless future, writing, “Canadians got a taste of what the world would look like without a robust journalism industry Thursday morning, as multiple newspapers published blank front pages.”
