Toronto is Dead

The National Post‘s nice weekend-edition Toronto pseudo-magazine is officially dead, allegedly the result of CanWest’s ever-present and ever-worsening financial troubles. Canadian Magazines says that “whatever is salvaged from the section will now be subsumed in the main, broadsheet pages of the weekend paper,” and that “this most recent change will reduce three magazine-style features…to only one in the main paper,” which is a shame: those features, like (former Torontoist staffer) Mark Medley’s recent article about Toronto Centre Animal Alliance Environment Voters’ Alliance candidate Liz White [PDF], were often excellent and quite pretty. But we’ve also heard that the content might not be changing too much—just the format—so we’ll have to wait and see. In the interim, happy birthday, Post!
