Nine Canadian Dailies To Halt Print Issues On Mondays

Canada will soon see nine daily newspapers stop printing editions on Mondays. 

The publications are The Vancouver Sun, The Province, Calgary Herald, Calgary Sun, Edmonton Journal, Edmonton Sun, Ottawa Citizen, Ottawa Sun and Montreal Gazette, publisher Postmedia Network Inc. announced last week.

That leaves the Toronto Star, Toronto Sun, Winnipeg Sun, Journal de Montréal and Journal de Québec as the only dailies in Canada that publish print editions seven days a week, the Globe And Mail reports, media analyst Steve Faguy.

“The decision to eliminate Monday print editions reflects the rapidly changing news consumption habits of our readers, the needs of our advertisers and the escalating costs of printing and delivering a printed product,” Postmedia spokesperson Phyllise Gelfand said in a statement, according to the Globe And Mail.
