As I reported the other day a cursory check of corner newspaper boxes showed a distinct lack of the National Post in downtown Edmonton.
As an update I checked some more popular spots on Whyte Avenue, to find a few Post boxes still standing.
Like good soldiers of the right on lonely vigil on street corners, the boxes were empty. Popular paper.
Not really they were full of dust and dirt, indicating that rather than overwhelming sales they had not been filled in some time.
Is CanWests local paper the Journal sabotaging the Pest, in true competitive intrique.
Or is it the Post has retreated from the market, heading East. Awaiting the end, watching the going down of the sun and the playing of the epigraphical Last Post.
