Do Canada's legacy news orgs have digital strategies? Do they make any sense? Is profitability online even possible?

Do Canada’s legacy news orgs have digital strategies? Do they make any sense? Is profitability online even possible? Three of today’s panelists held top digital jobs at Canadian news orgs. Chris Tindal was the director of Project Development at Postmedia (now he’s at Buzzfeed.) Tessa Sproule was the CBC’s Director of Digital (now she’s at Vubble, her startup.) Craig Saila was the head of digital design at the Globe and Mail. Our fourth panelist is Joshua Benton, Director of the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard.
