Like the dreaded Black Knight in the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The National Post keeps losing its limbs, while vowing to fight on. So, having stopped distribution in Atlantic Canada last year, the Post has now amputated the daily edition in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Death by a thousand cuts indeed; why don’t they just shut it down, or try it as a Toronto daily, which is where their emphasis is anyway. After all, it’s pretty hard to call yourself a national newspaper when you only circulate in four of ten provinces: Alberta, BC, Ontario and Quebec.
