CanWest’s flagship newspaper survives latest hurdle

by

An Ontario judge has permitted CanWest Global Communications to move the financially-battered National Post newspaper into a holding company that also includes the media giant’s city dailies, including the Ottawa Citizen and Vancouver Sun. The approval effectively saves the Post from shuttering–for now. A lawyer for the company argued that the Post and the CanWest city newspapers are so deeply intertwined that allowing the nation paper to close might scuttle restructuring plans for the whole company.
