Canwest cancels Monday Post editions for summer

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.

TORONTO — 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.

A spokeswoman for the paper, which is owned by debt-plagued Canwest Global Communications Corp. (TSX:CGS), said Wednesday that the company will still publish a digital edition, which mirrors the exact look of a newsprint version.

However, it won’t go to the presses for the summer, starting June 29.

Canwest spokeswoman Phyllise Gelfand said the announcement was made to employees of the Toronto-based newspaper Wednesday, and the announcement would appear in Thursday’s print edition.

The plan will continue for nine consecutive Mondays this summer, she said.

Both the digital edition, and the website will continue to feature fresh news content.

Canwest has been grappling with its own debt problems, working to meet revised deadlines with creditors and sell non-core assets.
